Well worth a visit if you've time to kill in Atlanta. Nice little museum. The exterior exhibits are tricky to photograph but there some lovely machines inside.

Delta's first DC-3 from 1940

Nice to see Delta caring so much about their heritage - it looks a great place. Is it at the airport?
its time to kick the tyres and light the fires

Delta do seem proud of their heritage. The museum is on the nothern perimeter of the airport.

Thanks for the post. From all accounts, it is a fab place that has recently (?) had a 747-400 (ex-NWA) added to the lineup. I believe the museum also has a simulator section at which you can fly some of their past fleet. The 737-200Adv is my choice because it is one type that I have yet to fly. :biggrin:
Cheers,

There's a 747-400, a DC-9 and 757 outside but they are in the car park and tricky to photograph well.
