airplane_pic_2Our very own Thoro team member, Alda Escobar is an amazing, talented artist. Recently, she was commissioned to create an aviation-themed painting for the once grounded Corona Airport Café.

Alda’s mixed media black and white painting was created using 90% acrylic, it measures 35″ x 35″ and took approximately 25 hours to complete. Her painting is a dramatic interpretation of a 747 turbine and looks completely at home, hanging on the wall of the café.

The Thoro team is happy to see the Corona Airport Café take flight again. It has great food and a rich history dating back to 1974. Pilots would fly in for breakfast specials that were worth the ride. Some of the most note worthy diners of the past were Harrison Ford, John Travolta and Steve McQueen.
