name that evokes color.
you think of Braniff, you are probably thinking of brightly coloured airplanes, and the designing talents of: Girard, Calder or Pucci. But, the early years at Braniff were just as colourful. This extrordinary airline was started in 1927
with two brothers, Paul and Tom Braniff, and a dream. They were aviation
pioneers like: C.R. Smith of American, C.E. Woolman of Delta, Eddie Rickenbacker
of Eastern, Ted Baker of National, Juan Trippe of Pan Am and many others who paved the way for commercial flight.
this page, we plan to look at the early days of Braniff, when
The Braniff's ushered in travel from the Great Lakes to the
Gulf and later to South America. We look at Chuck Beard ushering in the jet
age. And we cover the "Pucci"/H.L. Lawrence years thru 1982. We also look at Braniff, Inc. (II) all the way to Braniff events in 2002. Some stories are good, some raise questions, all are interesting. All information comes directly from Braniff employees, family, historians and original documents.
sit back, relax and let US take YOU on a journey of colour!
