Deltaguy i emailed them and told them I have over 100 ads from the 60's & 70's from National Geographics.

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.

"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.

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
