"The Dardnest Thing I Ever Saw!"

The "Terminal of the Future" was finished in 1968. It featured the first "rotunda" and the very first mono-rail system. The "Jetrail" tracks can be seen going into the terminal.

Love Field in a publication

The "Terminal of the Future" Circa 1995. Notice the lights, designed by Harper and George, are still there and the post for the "flight status" board is still standing. The "Oak Panel benches" were also still there as were some of the Eames herman miller seats. However, in 1999, American gutted the terminal, and nothing is left.
