Well, my holiday/vacation is now coming to an end. While away, I connected thru CLT on my way to MIA. Before anyone has kittens and says this is a trip report; the gist of this thread are two historical boo boos aviation wise.
By the US gates in the CLT terminal there was a cool display case with the airport's history. Everything was cool until I spotted a black and white photo showing an Eastern Electra in the background. The airport 1962.The Eastern L-188 shown had the hockey stick logo! The hockey stick appeared at it's earliest in 1964! in '62 you still had the Golden Falcoln.
Flash forward to Graceland. Three tour guides said in their speaches:This airplane is a Convair 880 flown by Delta since 1958!
Please correct me if I'm wrong but DL first jet flights were DC-8's which took to the skies in 1959!Lucy, you got some splainin to do!
