The Proud Bird Restaurant at LAX

The iconic Proud Bird Restaurant at LAX is slated to close at the end of 2013 unless the restaurant can reach a new lease agreement with Los Angeles World Airports which owns the land on which the restaurant sits.

Before this happens, and its collection of planes and memorabilia is dispersed -- the restaurant houses one of the largest collection of materials related to the Tuskegee Airmen -- I'm trying to photograph and document as much as I can.
