Once, an iconic local sign of the future of aviation. Now, a landmark and a reminder of aviation's historic past. The sign sits atop the historic building 80 at the former Douglas Aircraft Company - at the corner of Lakewood Boulevard and Conant Street - in Long Beach, California.The sign originally read "Fly DC-10 Jets" but the 10 was removed after a DC-10 was involved.in a disastrous crash years ago. Building 80 was the first building I worked in when I began in 1979.
