This phone case features a TWA bag sticker from the early 1930's promoting the Lindbergh Line and the Fokker F.10. On October 25, 1930, the airline offered one of the first all-plane scheduled service from coast to coast: the Lindbergh Line. The route took 36 hours and initially called for overnights in Kansas City. In summer 1931, TWA moved its headquarters from New York to Kansas City, Missouri.

In 1931, the airline nearly went out of business after one of its Fokker F.10s shed a wing and crashed on March 31 near Bazaar, Kansas, killing all eight on board, including University of Notre Dame football coach Knute Rockne. Investigation revealed that the wing's wooden structure had deteriorated. In the wake of the crash, the Fokker F.10 was temporarily grounded, and a more frequent and rigorous inspection and maintenance regimen was put in place, making it more expensive to operate. The F.10's public image, and that of all wooden-structured aircraft, suffered badly from the crash. TWA needed a replacement which would be the DC-1, DC-2 and the very popular DC-3.

This is a slim fit, lightweight and durable mobile phone cover. One-piece clip-on slim fitting case that allows full access to all device ports.
