ORD Maintenance and Ramp We schedule a lunch on Mondays at 11:00 every few months at the Sunmist Restaurant on Lake Street, just West of Route 83 in the town of Addison. This has been going for about fifteen years for the Maintenance group and we are now asking the Ramp guys and actually anyone that worked with us to join with us. Please pass the word. The next LUNCH will be on March 6, 2017 at 11 AM. If there are any questions call Steve Kolish 847-848-7013 or 847-966-8046. The 2016 picnic was memorable and a lot of fun. CLICK HERE for the video. The 2010 picnic was a great event and here is a video of all the fun. CLICK HERE.
Stepping even further back into time is a video of the 2006 picnic. CLICK HERE

TWA Museum at 10 Richards Road http://twamuseumat10richardsroad.org/
Update as of September 27, 12016: We are pleased to announce a new feature on our museum's website, called the TWA Museum Guides Blog. Each article in the blog is about an exhibit or part of the museum that is of special interest to our guide writing the article. So far, we have four articles: (1) The newly-donated TWA SST model in our museum and Concorde's "interesting" relation with TWA, (2) Our museum's Education Center which features early pilot simulator training tools, (3) A look at our museum's Lockheed Constellation flight simulator, one of our most popular exhibits, and (4) TWA's Boeing 307 "Stratoliner", a most extraordinary aircraft. In addition to being the first pressurized commercial aircraft (allowing passengers to fly "above the weather"), the Stratoliner also answered the call to service in World War II, seeing duty ferrying supplies and ammunition in support of the Allied effort. We'll also look at some photos and pieces from our Stratoliner exhibit at the museum. We think you'll enjoy reading this story and seeing how your support helps us to preserve and tell about this legendary airplane and its history with TWA..
The blog has been online several months and has generated many views. Statistics and feedback indicate a large number of people are very interested in the history and legacy of TWA. We know you are too. And, importantly, you'll get a closer look at our museum and staff and will see how your support keeps the museum's mission vital and growing.
The TWA Museum Guides Blog can be accessed thorough our museum's website home page at http://www.twamuseumat10richardsroad.org/. You'll see the link displayed right next to the pictures of our founders. A "contact us" link is located at the end of each article. Feel free to let us know your thoughts.
