Highlights include World Airways DC-8, 707, 747, DC-10, Pan American DC-7 and 707, Wien Alaska 737-210C, Trans International DC-8, Flying Tigers 707, DC-8 and 747 and loads more!
This 25 minute film was produced by the US Air Force for educational purposes but it has more classic airline footage than military aircraft footage. It is very interesting to learn about the various operational taskings of the CRAF fleet during times or peace and war over the past seventy years.
