Description

1956 - 1976

By Robert D. Archer 

 

Savor a pictorial essay through time! In this, the first of our new Airport book series, we enjoy a nostalgic visit to Los Angeles International Airport for a sampling of the great props, turboprops, and early jets which called there during the most profound transition period in civil aviation history. Veteran historian and photographer Robert D. Archer has captured on film the color and excitement of LAX. From the mid-1950s, when the glorious pistonliners ruled the skies, and through the dawn of the Jet Age as the decade closed, we observe the "Soaring Sixties" which produced improved, longer range aircraft, and then see the introduction of wide-body jumbo-jets of the early 1970s. Witness too the evolution of LAX itself, as the airport's center of activity migrates from Avion Drive to a new "Jet Age" terminal complex on World Way, west of Sepulveda Boulevard. Bob Archer's running commentary guides you through this  exciting time, complemented by individual historical background  information on each featured aircraft. Airliners at LAX will spark the  memory of anyone who has visited or worked at the airport, and take  today's visitors back to a colourful period that began over 40 years ago.
