    Sorry I had to bail, there was a school lock down at my sons HS and then to fly over here to Dublin. I love all those older commercials, flying used to be something special, an event that people would dress up for now it's flip flops, sweatpants. and cops dragging screaming passengers off. I still love the industry, although it's lost some luster it still allows people to get around and see the world and the scope of is really something to behold.


    I love this video.


    While searching for that last video I ran across this one focused on Europe, it has some nice 3d perspective.
