American Airlines JFK Terminal Tribute Poster


American Airlines JFK Terminal Tribute Poster


Poster size is 14" wide by 20" tall, including a one-inch white border, and is printed on heavyweight, acid-free poster stock.

This original art print, illustrated by Chris Bidlack and set about 1964, celebrates the original American Airlines terminal at Idlewild Airport, designed by Kahn & Jacobs, and opened in 1960. The most memorable aspect of the terminal was the gigantic Robert Sowers-designed stained glass window, which made up most of the front facade of the building. Measuring well over 300 feet long, and over 22 feet high, it was the world's longest stained glass window at the time.

Under the terminal's overhang, below the gigantic window, traffic on the old Departures Level roadway is depicted. The terminal, demolished in 2007-2008, was one of the original terminals of New York International Airport’s Terminal City Complex, envisioned by Wallace K. Harrison and Thomas Sullivan, and built between 1957 and 1970.

Overhead, a departing 707-120B, ship N7526A, is illustrated in American's first Astrojet livery. This aircraft flew for American Airlines from 1961 into 1978.

Based on initial airliner show sales, this print is quickly becoming one of the most popular Jet Age Art airplane posters of the series. Order yours today!

The print will arrive carefully packaged and ready for you to unroll and frame. (Framing instructions included.) Click on the image to see the full poster in detail. (And of course, the "" watermark does not appear on the actual poster.)
