Ozark Air Lines DC-9



Oversize 5″ x 7″, company-issued postcard.  Since Ozark Air Lines acquired its first DC-9s in 1966, I would suppose this card dates from about then.  Ozark lasted from 1950 to 1986, when it was bought out by TWA.  The company was based in St. Louis.

The Take-off

Easily one of my favorite airline cards.  This great 1947 shot, unattributed except for the “Kodachrome by Trans World Airline” cut line, is of a DC-3.
This same shot, on an earlier card, is noted as a “Color Foto by Trans World Airline”.
It’s a linen-finish card.  On the back is the TWA logo and “Litho in U.S.A. – 3-265, 9 -47”
