That is one of the main things I noticed. Not to mention a few of the guys back then still wore hats.

Yeah, that's when women dressed like women, not like the men that most dress like today.

What a wonderful thread! This certainly proves that being an air hub is not a recent development here.

Thanks so much for posting this, PlaneFolks!

You had to be pretty rich to fly until about the late 70s when deregulation started the discounters like Value Jet. I was not on a plane until I was an adult. When I was a kid in the 60s, you drove or did Greyhound.
