Hello all...

For anyone interested, I wanted to let you know I have started a new section to the website:

www.departedflights.com

The new section features a sampling of old airline ads taken from various airline timetables. More ads will be added continuously. Hope you all enjoy!

Deltaguy i emailed them and told them I have over 100 ads from the 60's & 70's from National Geographics. I have DL DC-10 , 747 and L1011. The ' Delta is run by professionals' ads. I asked if they wanted them.

Great site...One question, how is it possible that in all these ads, there are non from the queen of the skies, Pan Am...I know there are plenty of sites with their ads, just shocked to see that they wouldn't be on this site of ads from the 50's-90's.

Pan Am has a place of its' own. You call it the world, we call it home.

They said a lot in those ads of years gone by. Today it is more pictures less words. Great site. Big grin Love the DL and the 747 ads.


There is something special about planes....

I remember seeing Boeing ads in National Geographic in the early 70's with really cool maps showing all the routes 747's operated. Any chance someone has a scan of any of those? Would love to see them again.

http://www.airchive.com has some interesting stuff.

However, statements such as:
"TAA, along with Qantas and Ansett, have never suffered an accident or loss of life."
do unfortunately demonstrate how totally inaccurate some of the content is and how urban myths and legends become believed information. Just above this quote Qantas's safety record is based on it being mentioned in a movie, hardly an informed and reliable source.

I would suggest that such sites stick with describing what is being displayed not inaccurately re-writing history.

Considering that TAA lost a Viscount in a training accident, Ansett lost a Viscount in Sydney (all aboard killed) and Qantas had a couple of accidents pre-jets, I'd have to agree with you.

Nice ads and great website!



I do quite enjoy a spot of flying - more so when it's not in Economy!

United_Fan, Just thought I would let you know. That picture of the woman in the orange dress in the lounge of the 747-200 is my mother. Being the secretary to the VP of Pan Am from 1961-69, she flew many of the first flights on the 747. Including its first commercial flight. She does not remember where the plane was going, she thinks it was Kennedy/Idle-San Jaun. She remembered sitting next to a friend of hers, when they asked her to pose for a picture. Just thought I'd include that
