  1. LOVE it! Daddy flew for Eastern and what a GORGEOUS shot of his plane YOUR dad got! (Not to mention, got those Wings of Gold here, before flying for the Marine Corps.) thank you so much for putting this beauty up. Now I’m on a hunt for the girl in the Eastern plane hat.

    • Thanks for the comment … The hat must have been part of a fashion show that Eastern Air Lines put on and I am pretty sure that those photos were made at the San Carlos Hotel.
