Iberia Airlines, about 1965
This photo was taken about 1965. Remember when flying was a big deal, and there was a photographer at the doorway to take your photo? Remember when everyone flying dressed up in suits, even the little boys? This is my father-in-law and my husband as a little boy. My father-in-law worked in New York City at the United Nations, and they would fly home to Madrid several times a year on Iberia Airlines. Later, my mother-in-law became a ticket agent and manager for Iberia, and they were able to continue flying home to visit family several times a year- even after my father-in-law stopped working at the UN and became a professor.
I often wonder if all this intercontinental flying my husband did as a little boy influenced his desire to become an aeronautical-astronautical engineer?
We found this photo in a box of memorabilia in Madrid, and scanned it with my Flip-Pal scanner.
