MIA Airport Sign Shirt
A retro that really rocks! MIA, formerly Wilcox Field, opened to passenger traffic as Pan American Field in 1928 then fell into disuse when Pan Am moved their flights to their Dinner Key seaplane base. Eastern and National began service from MIA in the mid thirties. The birth of the airport, as we know it today, was in 1945 when the City of Miami created a port authority and sold bonds to purchase the airport property.
In the past, it has been a hub for fallen flags Braniff International Airways, Eastern Air Lines, Air Florida, the original National Airlines, and the original Pan Am. And although those carriers are no longer servicing MIA, their shirts are still flying at Skyshirts International! As well as those of United, American, and Iberia, all who have or had hubs at MIA.
MIA has a history too rich and colorful to summarize here, but the shirt says it all. The artwork was created from an old black and white photograph of the sign directing drivers to the old terminal on 36th street on the north side of MIA. We colorized, enhanced, and added to until it perfectly reflected the colors and feel of MIA in the prop era. And now it's yours, while supplies last!
About SkyShirts We started this business as a hobby, not knowing it would grow into the Skyshirts of today! As an airline employee and afficionado back in the old days, I searched for memorabilia and t-shirts with little luck. So I decided to create my own t-shirts, with a handful for sale. Today we go from the DC-3 and Flying Boats to the new A380 and the 787. We have over 250 constantly changing shirt designs (check back monthly, you'll see!) But from the first shirt in 1986 to our latest, the quality has only gotten better. Our t-shirt artists and screen-printers are the best in the business, and our shirts are first quality USA-made Fruit-of-The Loom, Gildan, and Hanes. We guarantee our work. If you're not happy, neither are we. You can return your purchase for a FULL refund. We love making people happy, and we certainly love your feedback. Drop us a note on the "contact us" form and let us know what you think of our shirts and our service!
