'The Turn'






Today we share more photos from the Dave DeBace collection. These shots were taken on the 'C' side from a stand in Hangar 1, East Bay. They show a DC-9 in 'turn' mode. Aircraft would come in from the gates waiting for their flights or something had to be fixed/repaired or maybe an MEL needed repair. According to Dave, MEL's were fixed quickly 'back in the day' compared to today. Enjoy!
P.S. Of note are the Old Metropolitan Stadium (Twins) and the Metropolitan Arena (North Stars) in the backgrounds of the photos. Today the area's known as Mall of America.
