Flying Pegasus and Reunion Tower BW- We captured these two iconic landmark features of downtown Dallas the Flying Pegasus and Reunion Tower in black and white. The Flying Pegasus sit on top of a oil derick in front of the Omni hotel in downtown Dallas. This Pegasus had been on top of the Magnolia Hotel for more than half of a century till it was so rusted and damaged that it had to be taken down. The city of Dallas replace it with a new pegasus on top of the building for a cost of around 600,000. The orginal pegaus sat in a warehouse for years until a group of nostagic people came together and started the process of bringing it back to life, this city of dallas artistans came together and started to help bring it back. It was no small feat as no one seem to know where it was at first. Finally the orginal pegasus was found and then it needed a home and it was placed on an oil derrick in front of the Omni Hotel in downtown Dallas. From this location you can see two landmark for the city of Dallas with the Flying Pegasus and the Reunion Tower in view.

This Dallas vintage Pegasus show a close up with the Reunion Tower in the background as it appears to hoover over the city. The vintage Pegasus and the Reunion Tower are both official lankmarks for the city of Dallas and a toursit destination of things to see. Many come downtown to see these two iconic structures. The Vintage Pegasus has stood on top of the Magnolia Petroleum Building or Magnolia hotel since 1934 till 1999 when it came down due to damage over the years and and was replaced with a new flying horse which sits on top of the Magnoila Hotel today. It seem fitting to display the Pegasus as a Vintage Pegasus since this landmark has been around for a very long time. However in 2011 a group of Dallas artist and entreprenuers reconditioned the orginal flying horse back to life and it was place on an oil derrick in front of the Omni Hotel in downtown Dallas. Dallas pegasus have been a sense of pride for the people living here especially in the early 1940’s through 1999 as it came to be a become that you were home once you saw it. When the Magnolia was built it was the tallest building in Dallas so you could see the Pegasus from quite a distance. Now we have two Dallas Pegasos flying high over the Dallas skyline. The whole story of the pegasus came from greek mythology.
