Do you remember the airline industry of the late 1950s and early 1960s, when four-engined pistons co-existed with their jet replacements? When large turboprops had a future, because jets were not yet applicable on short-haul routes? Or when carrier marketing focused on equipment types, and colourful, complex paint schemes? If you do share an interest in this fascinating era of the airline business, it's likely that you never expected to see it again, in all its glory. We can thank Mel Lawrence for being there with his camera, and recording the classic airline images from the era for us to enjoy in living kodachrome colour. This ebook features 120 pages of colourful airliners photographed in the US, Canada and Hawaii in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Featured are superb, near full page colour photos of the following vintage airliners from the golden age: Boeing 707, 727, 737, Douglas DC-3, DC-4, DC-6, DC-7, DC-8, DC-9, Lockheed Electra and Constellation, Convair-Liner series as well as Convair 880 and 990, Bristol Britannia, and even Se210 Caravelle.
