Abstract

DEVELOPMENT of the Kansas City base of Transcontinental and Western Air has been proceeding since 1946, in which year the wartime Army‐operated modification centre in the city for B‐25 bombers and Constellations was leased from the Reconstruction Finance Corporation and converted to peacetime use at a cost of $1,000,000. The hangars, shop and office buildings enclose a combined area of 427,000 square feet and are surrounded by more than 1,000,000 square feet of concrete ramp or apron. The hangars are fitted to accommodate at the same time three Constellations and eight Stratocruisers, DC‐4's or DC‐3's. Nearly 2,000 men and women are employed at the base.
