    On May 24, 1959 the Great Pyramid of Khufu was illuminated.

    It was part of a promotional event by the bulb manufacturer, Sylvania, and was triggered with a series of synchronized circuits strung along 14 miles (23 kilometers) of wire. Preparations for the shot took more than a month; a team of 20 men made two sides of the ancient structure bristle with flashlamps attached to four-foot (two- meter) poles wedged between the limestone blocks.

    Dreaming of the plane you’ll travel in tomorrow, soldier? Cruising up to five miles a minute, sound-proofed, air-conditioned, smartly decorated, with the softest seats known to the anatomy of man… and a good-looking stewardess to serve you piping hot meals when you’re hungry!

    The Airlines will be ready with the planes and the service and the speed you’ll need when it’s all over and you’re back on the job, hustling yourself a career out of the opportunities which await you. May that day come soon!

    Already the nation’s Airlines are winning the wartime struggle to provide enough passenger capacity for all who must get there the fastest way. And nearer comes the day when, with larger planes and expanded schedules, they will fulfill the demand of millions for the speed, economy and comfort of travel by air and for the swift handling of cargo and mail.

    As any serviceman can tell you, air transport is a mighty important thing to America. Never, in time of war, has a nation been so favored with a weapon ready-forged to meet its enemies.

    Never, in time of peace, could a nation find so ready at hand so powerful and efficient a tool of reconstruction.
