MOA Galleria - Southdale Center Mall


Edina, Minnesota - circa 1956

Caption for the above photo, from Southdale Center mall:
"Southdale provided one of the most unique customer services ever - helicopter service. Customer could fly from Southdale to Dayton's downtown Minneapolis store, the airport or downtown St. Paul. The flying time between locations was 10 minutes. The first passenger was Mr. William Crear, Jr., executive vice president and general manager of Southdale. Mr Crear, seen here with pilot Donald Heyden, traveled to Dayton's rooftop heliport in downtown Minneapolis."
More Southdale Center: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

Cool concept at SOUTHDALE!

I'm anxious to see the stuff you have on the mall nearest and dearest to me....SW Ohio's DAYTON MALL.

This is a good information because I didn't know those flyings existed, but I have a question, Are those flyings still available?
