It's very interesting to watch about UAL inflgiht service back in 50's. It has more detailed about inflight service and airport.

1) How and why did UAL aircraft has to turn around? I was worried that the tail and fin may hit the pax bridge. LOL!
2) ancient manuel flight safety demo
3) Inflight meals looks very yummy...too bad we dont have a decent inflight meals in our present.
4) UAL crews asked two children to give the candies to the pax before landing...smiliar to ANZ way.



Another one...cabin crew uniform in the past

They Say "Big Ole jet airlina, don't carry me too far away.Ooooh Oooh, Big ol' jet airlina, for it's here dat I've got too stay!".


That was a cool video.

The show MST3K used some other encyclopedia Britannica films as opening shorts. I kinda wish that they had used this one.

That UA Flight 801 Flight film was made in 1960. They showed a Boeing 720-022 at the beginning. United began DC-8 Jet Mainliner Service on September 18, 1959. The 720's didn't come on line until June of 1960. But the United shield is the pre Capital Merger one.

The girls get a "junior stewardess" pin and the boys get a "junior pilot" pin - I love it!  bigthumbsup 

Too bad we don't have lounges on most planes nowadays...

The first video was made in 1961, you can see the Roman Numerials...Was the routing of UA 801 in real life, IDL-SFO?

I would bet IDL had nonstops to LAX, SFO, DEN and ORD then. The Dec 15, 1960 crash of a UA Dc-8 was coming from ORD to IDL

An interesting bit is that the shot of lower Manhattan shows a dockyard where Battery Park City now is.

Hilarious videos.

We learn:
Jet planes are big!
Jet planes have no propellers!
Girls get the junior stewardess pin and have to work on the plane, Boys the junior pilot pin (why do they need to work?)
