This gallery traces the history of Braniff International, one of America’s most colorful airlines, from its humble one-aircraft beginnings in 1928, through its worldwide expansion during the 1960s and 1970s, to its final flight in 1982.

The gallery includes a hand-painted model, signed by artist Alexander Calder, of a Braniff International Douglas DC-8. The model was painted to test out a Calder paint scheme before the artist applied it to an actual aircraft.
