That was an amazing time back then. 4 companies producing widebodies, jumbo-jets they were called then. Also, Concorde and the Tu-144 were catching everyone's attention.
Man was still going to the moon but with the Apollo missions ending, NASA was testing a reusable "space aircraft," the shuttle.
I excited about the A-380 and the B7E7, but when you look back, the 1970's really rock for the aviation industry.
