I was wondering if anyone knew when the first scheduled transatlantic flight from BOS was. I know that EI first served the airport in 1958, but the article doesn't say if it was the first and despite Boston being Ireland West and Ireland having always been a major stopover for TATL flights, I doubt it was the first. I would've thought it would've been to London.
Also, I've heard that other now-defunct airports such as the one in Canton had TATL flights as well, and that BED may have at one point. And it would be interesting to see who else (military or private) flew TATL from BOS as well.

As a sidenote, I believe the first foreign carrier service to BOS was Trans-Canada Air Lines which commenced twice-daily DC-3 service from Halifax (with stops at Yarmouth, Nova Scotia or Saint John, New Brunswick) on April 1, 1947.
