Chicago Midway Airport - 1954

Thu Jan 04, 2007 2:39 pm

A few months ago, I posted a video showing some 8mm film footage of Midway Airport in 1954 (I said it was 1956 but have been corrected). The film was shot by my mother when she was a ticket agent for North Central Airlines. I completed a new clip showing some new scenes, including an out-the-window shot of a Connie landing past the United maintenance facility. Kinda cool.

Small file size (320 x 240 5.5MB) clip here:

I'll be posting a huge 640 x 480 clip later.
