1962 Los Angeles International Airport Lax “Airport In The Jet Age”

Airport In The Jet Age

Produced in 1962, “Airport in the Jet Age” is a standard educational film about airplane travel. What makes it worth watching is the fact that it shows Los Angeles’ LAX Airport during the early part of the jet age and just after it was redesigned by architecture film Periera & Luckman. At this time the airport featured a central hub with the control tower and “theme building”, and a series of outlying terminals. Ross, the child featured in the film, travels by Helicab helicopter to the airport and boards a United Airlines DC-8 jet.
