What Actress was a Passenger on the First Jet Airliner to Land at Sky Harbor?

July 18, 2017

For Arizona Contractor & Community magazine's first centerfold, staff debated between Marilyn Monroe and Gina Lollobrigida until finally taking a tip from Frank Lloyd Wright and opting for this svelte beauty that still graces the Phoenix skyline. Formerly the Terminal 1 control tower, the structure composed of underground storage tanks welded together now is used at the Cutter Aviation facility at Sky Harbor Airport. By the way, Monroe just happened to be one of the passengers when the first jet airliner, a Boeing 707, made an emergency landing in Phoenix in 1959. Visit the magazine's website and see what other surprises we offer the Arizona construction industry and history buffs.
