BRANIFF LINKS:A sister Braniff history site : braniffinternational.com
Carlos Yudica focuses primarily on Braniff's "Flying Colors" days 1965-1982 and the creative art designs from that period. Carlos is a brilliant art director, as you will find out when you visit his site. It is definitely worth the trip. (Slide show designed by Carlos Yudica using old Braniff Pictures)
THE BRANIFF LIST
This is a website for former Braniff Pilots. To us, the ONLY non-political fair and balanced website for former Braniff Flight Crews. The website is fluid and will be constantly changing as Braniff Pilots update their own information. Recently all the pilots who were on the 7-1-1968 seniority list who had left Braniff prior to the bankruptcy filing were added to the website. Many of you remember the Braniff yearbook that never happened. Rich Russell forwarded the individual pilot pictures that were taken, and they have been added to the website. There are more pictures than we can count, and an almost complete B-Liner collection! Captain John North is the webmaster. NOTE: IT IS A MEMBERS ONLY site.
