The Curator’s Choice 64

Everyone knows that I think airliners are way cool. I like them because, with very rare exceptions, they have never deliberately killed anyone or destroyed anything. Their business is to carry people and freight from place to place as safely as possible. In other words, their task is to make people happy, not unhappy as military aircraft are designed to do. To those who don’t care to look, they all appear more or less the same and most of them are painted white these days. But if you care to look deeper you will find that airliners have their own histories and stories to tell. Here are three that span six decades of air transport history.
