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. Dade County's economy was strengthened by having so many families making above average wages and excellent benefits and so many suppliers in town survived by getting business from Eastern the company and Eastern's employees.

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
