Moments from Golden Age of Aviation

Amazing moments from Golden Age of Aviation! There are some vintage photos from 1946 to 1970, sourced from Iberia, KLM, Delta, British Airways and Pan Am, that show how glamorous flying used to be.

Flying during the so-called  Golden Age of Aviation was very expensive, scary and dangerous (statistically, there were a lot more plane crashes and flight accidents in the period), quite boring (because of it people used to drink and smoke a lot) and racist (even if a black person could afford a ticket as a minority, but there was a chance he/she wouldn't be allowed into the same planes as white passengers). It is said that The Golden Age of Flying was an age where very few of us could have flown, and when only slightly more of us would likely have wanted to. However, photos are rare and fascinating that show glamorous aviation in the 20th Century. Take a look and decide yourself!

Even if flights are much cheaper than used to be, some people still love luxury. See the photos of the Inside of Boeing 747-8 private jet and prove it yourself!
