VIDEO: MIA Takes Passengers On Trip Through Time With Vintage Video

Miami International Airport is taking some of its passengers on a trip -- not to the sky, though, but down memory lane. 

A vintage video project, developed by the Miami-Dade Aviation Department and the Lynn and Louis Wolfson II Florida Moving Image Archives at Miami Dade College, takes modern day flight passengers on a journey through time.

Outdated display monitors inside MIA’s Concourse F have been refurbished by the airport to display clips from the Wolfson Archives, including: 

  • Vintage footage of MIA from 1950s and 1960s
  • Celebrities arriving at the airport from the 1950s to the 1980s
  • Home movies filmed in Miami between the 1920s and 1960s 
  • The 1940s promotional film Florida: Land of Perpetual Sunshine

“We are proud to host this video retrospective of our growth as an airport and as a community over the decades,” said Miami-Dade Aviation Director Emilio T. González. 

“Since it was founded in 1928, MIA has been the driving force behind Miami’s transformation into a global tourism destination, and our hope is that this entertaining film project gives passengers a greater understanding and appreciation of that history.”
