OMG I love those planes, that was when FLYING was FLYING
And look at that AA lounge photo!!! Can you imagine being the pilot of THAT? Those were the golden days of aviation, when flying wasn't just flying, it wasn't just transportation, it was an Experience
, something to be remembered and savored. Something to share with family and freinds, cofort, class, and prestige, all in one, that was the way flying was, the way flying should be.
Today airline travel is little more than glorified busing, what an experience it must have been to ride on the wings of the old! To kiss the skies in something that represented the modern, the sleek, the fast, the luxurious, the enjoyable. Ah, those were the goodl old days, if only, for one brief moment, they could return.....I am sure all of us avid aviation lovers woudl die on the spot, and don our wings and fly with the angels of old, eternal bliss among silver wings.....
