Historical Eastern Air Lines (later Airlines) Photo Gallery - click on image to enter



Eastern Airlines was the big airline in Miami, employing thousands of residents who lived all over the county and up into Broward. When I was a kid it seemed like every block had an Eastern family on it and often two or three Eastern families.

In addition to these photos, I have more Eastern photos located at: http://www.pbase.com/airlinerphotos/35mm_eastern There is an excellent 1951 amateur video of Eastern at Miami International Airport viewable at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6LnCJmIPDQ&feature=related

Michael Manning's blog about his interview with Martin Shugrue, trustee for the Eastern estate, can be read at: http://michaelmanningtv.blogspot.com/2010/12/eastern-airlines-remembering-pioneer_19.html
