New! Delta Collections now online

Jan 09, 2017

We are very pleased to announce a new way to share our collections with you! 

Our Online Collections Database is our new destination for Delta history. Visit the site to see and learn about many of the unique archive, objects, photos and books housed in the Museum, such as this beautiful 1:25 scale 21-passenger Douglas DC-3 model airplane

Delta DC-3 Cutaway Model Airplane

We are just taking off with over 400 records now available for viewing, and continue to add items weekly from the thousands of artifacts at the Museum. We recognize donors in the credit line for each item. We have also added subjects and search terms to help make your searching successful.

Each record has a “Send Us Feedback” button, so if you have more information about an item, or find an edit is needed, you can easily let us know. Your feedback helps contribute to Delta's history!  

Please note, the Photos Catalog only features photos that were gifted to, or otherwise acquired by the Delta Flight Museum. This database does not provide access to Delta's corporate image collection. We also provide selected description of Delta archival records. For questions concerning these materials, please contact our Archives staff directly by email:

We are excited to have a new way to help our visitors explore aviation history, celebrate the story and people of Delta, and discover the future of flight. We hope you enjoy your experience! Let us know.

    Airport code - PUK  was not liked by city/county fathers. so was changed to PAH..  Having been in Puk and then PAH two different times for a total of 16  ( out of my 38 )  years, It was and is home to me.


    And is now as my son and Dau-in-law have positions at PAH with Management and Local Flight service (Midwest Avaition )  I sometimes frequent the old workplace with pride of Delta's service that was cut off in 1979.
