UCF Researchers to Use Laser Scanners to Digitally Preserve New York’s Iconic TWA Flight Center

The TWA Flight Center at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport looks like something straight out of Mad Men, an architectural marvel that evokes the wings of a bird and the dawn of the Jet Age.

Historians worry that looming plans to develop the Trans World Airlines terminal as a hotel may sacrifice some of the iconic features that earned it a spot on the National Register of Historic Places. Next week, researchers from the University of Central Florida will lead a team that will use high-tech laser scanners to capture the interior and exterior of the structure before that may happen.
