Now Boarding LA: Architecture of Flight Exhibit Delights at Santa Monica Museum of Flying


The first phase of the highly anticipated $1.5 billion Tom Bradley International Terminal expansion at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) will soon be open for business, creating a beautiful, modern portal to the rest of the world befitting the City of Angels. To celebrate, the Santa Monica Museum of Flying showcases the architecture and planning behind the expansion and highlights the future look of the finished terminal in its new exhibit, Now Boarding: Fentress Airports + the Architecture of Flight.  We got a sneak peek at a recent special event that also included a vintage flight attendant uniform fashion show, a surprise opera solo, and a personalized tour of the exhibit. Our favorite installation is a detailed 24-foot scale model of the new terminal, which took 8,000+ hours to build. It is enormously impressive, to say the least. Here it is: The soon-to-be-opened new international terminal at LAX is designed to optimize efficiency, decrease wait times, and help passengers get through security as quickly as possible — and on to their final destinations in optimal shape. The design also features a high-end retail and shopping area emphasizing local Los Angeles vendors and restaurants, for those tourists who didn’t get enough
