Would You Go on a Flight To... Anywhere?

Would you go on a flight to... anywhere?

A quick little link for your Sunday, about the truly fabulous marketing stunt pulled in 1950 by a British holiday company. Apparently, travellers could pay to hop on a plane, and not know where they would end up. The beach? The Alps? No one knew until they landed.

Which leads to the obvious question: Would you go? (Yes, yes I would.)

Read more about it (and see plenty of amazing retro airline photos) here - and have a lovely rest of the weekend!
