ATLANTA (AP) Delta Air Lines is re-opening a museum at its Atlanta headquarters after extensive renovations in hopes of luring tourists to the company's original aircraft maintenance hangars on the north edge of the world's busiest airport. <br />
Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and Delta CEO Richard Anderson are expected to attend the newly renovated museum's grand opening Tuesday. <br />
The 68,000-square-foot museum, housed in hangers that date to the 1940s, traces Delta's history from crop-dusting and air mail service to its first passenger flight from Dallas to Jackson, Mississippi, on June 17, 1929. <br />
The museum includes Delta's first Douglas DC-3 and its first Boeing 767 jet. <br />
Its oldest plane is a Northwest Airways Waco 125, purchased in 1928. Northwest Airways later became Northwest Airlines, which merged with Delta in 2008.
