1929 TAT 1st Trans-USA airline passenger flights, coast to coast, Pt 2 of 2

Come visit 1929 Transcontinental Air Transport (TAT) and see how TAT formed the first airways airline passenger route across the USA using Ford Trimotor aircraft and innovative systems for flying and for passengers. Called the “Lindbergh Line” it involved 2 days of combined travel by air and train. This Part 2 video covers Waynoka to Columbus. Part 1 covered Los Angeles to Clovis. Clovis to Waynoka was by overnight train, as was Columbus to New York/Washington DC. Hope you enjoy. Cheers.

interesting videos, liked the part about the comfort of flight :slight_smile:

Funny you should mention that because I too found that part interesting. I had assumed that with their year-long preparations, luxurious appointments etc that the flying would be much more comfortable than described. Perhaps another reason for too low passenger numbers, along with expensive fares and earlier safety concerns maybe. Cheers, and thanks for your comment.
