If you’re flying through Terminal 3 of San Francisco International (SFO) in the coming months, factor in an extra 15 minutes to check out an amazing United Airlines museum-quality exhibit.
The SFO Museum rotates collections twice per year in the long hallway the security checkpoint and food court in Terminal 3. After a fascinating exhibit on vintage gambling devices, a tremendous collection entitled Flying the Main Line: a history of United Airlines will be on display through March 04, 2018. The exhibit chronicles United’s 91-year history and includes such interesting items as:
- Aircraft models
- Pilot Wings
- Hawaii service
- Amenity Kits
- An original lavatory sink
- Old route maps
I had breakfast in the American Express Centurion Lounge yesterday and did not leave until it was time for final boarding for my flight down to Burbank. I immediately regretted leaving so late when I found the exhibit. The good news is there will be plenty of chances to see it in the coming months. But if you’re into this sort of thing, give yourself 15-20 minutes. The details/descriptions are interesting as well.
Give yourself a few minutes to check this out next time you find yourself at SFO. If you’re any kind of aviation junky, this is not to be missed.
