Such a different era, when the airlines seemed to be vying for the "hottest stewardess" award!

Beautiful Machines, beautiful stewardess too. They do seem to be trying for the hotness award huh? Kind of a “Hippie but a good girl” thing!

I have a great 16mm study film from 1961 with two kids who take a “jet flight” The 707 in the film clearly has visible exhaust belching from all four engines, did they airbrush that out of these pics? Were all the original 707’s like that?

Nice post, thanks!
