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 Hawk One Canadair Sabre jet was restored between 2007 and 2008, and help commemorates the 100th anniversary of flight in Canada. It was flown and displayed at airshows across Canada, and AirlineTV.net presents this selection of exclusive footage filmed during the airshow's media day on Thursday, August 6, 2009. Canadian astronaut and armed forces pilot Col. Chris Hadield presents the aircraft to the media on the flightline at the start of this video clip.
