Video clips

To view some interesting video clips from the early years of commercial aviation we would recommend that browsing the enormous library of YouTube can lead to some rare treasures. We would like to show some examples.

This is from a 1941 news reel during WWII. Ferry Command was a top secret military operation and Gander Airport which was associated with this operation was not to be identified.

The second clip is from a TWA promotion about the Super Constellation aircraft which was a familiar sight at Gander Airport during the late 1940s and early 1950s.

There are quite a few very good videos on YouTube that will let you get a glimpse of aviation in this era. If anyone finds something interesting be sure to lets us know so we can pass it along.
