I'd love to experience a crossing of the Atlantic in a zeppelin - not necessarily the Hindenburg , but I would definitely go for the glamour and the totally different realm of experience. I would like to know whether the things felt as graceful in flight as they look from outside, would like to be able to read a novel while glancing down at a sunlit ocean passing at a leisurely pace under my feet.....
Now, is that the 1930s or the 1920s.... Did I just make a fool of myself?

My hometown, RKS-Rock Springs, WY, was on United's original Main Line route back in the 30's. They flew Boeing 247's. It would have been fun to fly there and see what it was like in the 30's, or board a flight in RKS to Chicago with a stop in Cheyenne to see United's Maintenance facility and FIRST Stewardess training facility.
Oh how I long for the day when the skies were truly Friendly!
