Description: On May 13, 1982, Braniff International's "flying colors" never left the ground. Chairman Howard D. Putnam had announced at 12:01 am that Braniff was bankrupt. Fifty-nine jets sat motionless and some 10,000 employees had no job. A shaken and exhausted Howard Putnam announced to his employees and the world that Braniff had no more cash.

American Airlines picked up most of Braniff's business; within two weeks, American had substantially raised its rates.
