Ultra Swank - Retro Adventures

New York to Puerto Rico by Air in 1962

Written by Christopher Alm • April 12th, 2012

Home video shot in 1962 that depicts some quite amazing piece of silent film history.

We start with a early departure at Boston Airport and then take to the skies and land at New York City and Idlewild airport (now JFK) where we first take a look at a legendary Pan Am Boeing 707 and then tour the Googie designed Eero Saarinen TWA flight center as well get a glimpse of the UFO-shaped Pan American Worldport.
