Format: Paperback
Now-a-days the concepts of commercial aviation and enjoyment are almost mutually exclusive. Nina Hadaway's THE GOLDEN AGE OF AIR TRAVEL remembers - and celebrates - those golden years when commercial air travel was special, fun, glamourous, enjoyable, an adventure.

Hadaway's compact, little book - 5 3/4 x 8 1/4 inches, 56 pages - details commercial aviation circa 1920s through the 1970s but with a decidedly British bent. Her narrative brims with references to Imperial Airways, Handley Page transports, BOAC, Freddie Laker, Heathrow, Viscounts, Comets, BEA, Concorde, etc. Period photographs, maps, ads and other memorabilia help recreate those by-gone days.

Though it's hardly exhaustive, THE GOLDEN AGE OF AIR TRAVEL, published by Shire Publications in 2013, is an appealing 'look back' at commercial air travel. Recommended.
