The very first flight I ever took must have been around 1977 at the age of 11. All of the previous vacations that my family took were by car. We drove everywhere from Vermont to Disney World in Orlando. So, when my mom told us we were going to be going to California I thought "that's going to be a long ride".

This time we would be flying on Trans World Airlines from the east coast to Los Angeles. I was equally as excited to be flying for the first time as I was to be headed to California and we were going on TWA!

There was a pride to fly TWA but the airline, once owned by Howard Hughes, flew for the last time in 2001. Today you can take a flight back in time with a visit or a stay at the TWA Hotel at JFK Airport in Queens.
