Miss Pittsburgh

Welcome from the Cliff Ball Wing

When you enter the landside terminal at the Pittsburgh International Airport, you may have noticed a vintage aircraft hanging over your head.  That airplane is “Miss Pittsburgh”, which made history by completing the first airmail flight from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Cleveland, Ohio on April 21, 1927.

“Miss Pittsburgh” is an OX-5 powered 1927 Waco 9 airplane.

After being lost for many years, the airplane was  rediscovered in 1993 by OX-5 pioneers and returned to Pittsburgh, where it was carefully refurbished by Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics.
