Classic Jetliners 1960s DVD
In the early 1960s, the world's airlines were transitioning from piston and turboprop aircraft to jet-powered aircraft. The dawn of the golden age of jet travel had arrived and global travel was becoming a mass, worldwide phenomena. Everyone wanted to travel by jet, and the world's airlines promoted their jet services by every means possible, including promotional cine films. This DVD takes the viewer back to that magic age with three period films featuring the three golden jets of the era, the Boeing 707, the Douglas DC-8, and the Convair 880.

The Douglas DC-8 went through a comprehensive development and flight test process, which was captured on a series of promotional colour chine films that were distributed to prospective airlines between 1957 and 1959.
We were able to professionally digitize a number of these historic films to exclusively present on this DVD. It should be noted that the image quality on these 60 year old films is not to the same standard that we are used to in this modern age of HD. Also, some of the films experienced age related breakdown and shrinkage which were beyond our control. But we felt the historical value of the films was the over-riding factor and it was important that the films be made available despite their technical limitations.
