Old magazine advert for United Airlines circa 1966.
Until this morning the biggest lady Mike McCabe had ever seen was his Aunt Stella.
Sure, he’d seen pictures of Miss Liberty. In Oakland. But they didn’t show that she was so big.
Or that she was green.
Another thing Mike discovered today was the fun of flying—on a United Air Lines Jet.
First, he got a pair of Junior Pilot’s wings. Next, he and his folks watched the latest color movie on a wide screen. What about lunch? Sirloin steak, with all the trimmings. (Mike didn’t eat the asparagus.)
Suddenly, they were in New York. And then on top of the Statue of Liberty. 176 steps and an elevator ride in the sky.
Now Mike’s looking at the view, 15 miles in each direction. There is nothing like it in the world.
Mike doesn’t have a lump in his throat. He’s too young for that. All he knows is—he’s discovering America.
And United flies to more of it, more often, than any other airline.
