    JFK TWA Flight Center Terminal 5 Open House Sunday October 16

    Open House New York just announced that the TWA Flight Center at JFK will be open to the public on Sunday, Oct. 16, 1pm to 4pm! No reservation is necessary.

    Open House New York is an annual two-day event showcasing hundreds of architecturally and historically significant places around NYC. The TWA event is not listed on their website yet, but they tweeted it about an hour ago.

    Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem.
    All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control.
    I trust you are not in too much distress. —Captain Eric Moody, British Airways Flight 9

    WOW!!! This is awesome news!! What a treat folks...really take the day and go step back in time! I really can't stress enough what a treat this will be for all who attend. Places like this simply do not exist anymore and the feeling you'll get from traveling back in time to an age of air travel that is all but extinct will be inspiring. I was lucky enough 2 months back to visit and I was blown away...Shameless plug below ;) I'd love to once again visit but I'm leaving for LA the morning of the 16th.

    Love your photos Tommy!

    Shame that the Arrivals Board appears to be gone now. Of course that wasn't a Saarinen design (or even if it was, not part of the building) but it was of the time at least.

    I was fortunate enough to be happening through the terminal in Summer 2000 when it was still up and running with TWA, but its been 10 years now. I'm going to have to try to make it out there for the Open House.

    OHNY has now added a page about the Flight Center: http://ohny.org/site-programs/weeken...-flight-center

    And yes, it is a free event.

    God, that corridor brings back so many amazing memories of trips to Switzerland and Greece. For a long time, TWA was the only carrier who flew to GVA and ATH from JFK non-stop. I took so many trips with them I can't even remember them all. 747-100, 747-200, 767-200 among many others are my fondest memories.

    It was good to see so many people out for this today. In addition to the NYCA characters, a bunch of folks from a photography group I'm in made the trip, and I met about a dozen people who knew my father (he's an old grump, and didn't come out today...)













    The Duty Free Shop (and the hallway leading down to baggage claim) wasn't supposed to be open. But the door was open, and a bunch of us wandered in and took pictures before one of the Port guys herded us out...
