The 60th anniverary of airline service at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and the LAX Airport Police will be held at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, October 4th, at the Flight Path Museum, 6661 W. Imperial Highway, LAX Imperial Terminal, on the south side of the airfield.

Tickets are $80. Themed “The Fabulous Flying Forties,” the evening begins with a reception at 5:30 p.m. and dinner at 7 p.m.

More than 300 guests are expected at the event, which is also the museum’s tenth annual gala fundraiser.

Vintage aircraft on display include two versions of the DC-3, which was a primary means of air travel in the 1940s, and a Lockheed C-40, the military version of an aircraft used by Howard Hughes on a record-breaking flight around the world.

One DC-3 was built in 1941 in Santa Monica and served as a TWA airplane and later as a Union Oil corporate aircraft. The other DC-3 is trimmed in United Airlines colors and has been restored as a VIP carrier.

RSVP to (310) 215-5291.
