Oh man, so many memories of Braniff Airways from a childhood in Texas. When the big news came out about the DFW-Dulles Concorde service, I begged my parents that we save our nickles to do the flight. Sad to read that they would have only 15 passengers on the flights.
This trip down memory lane was prompted by the blog of a friend’s family member, which linked to another blog that highlighted those crazy-awesome Braniff ads. Sonny Liston and Andy Warhol? Check. Whitey Ford and Salvador Dali? Yes, that too.
