United Airlines: The radar line (1958)

Radar means extra care on every Mainliner

Captain Jack Holst tells how United’s radar works. “With radar, United pilots can look 150 miles ahead, X-ray cloud masses, and avoid centers of turbulence without long detours. On United — with radar on every plane — we can give you smoother flights, more on-time arrivals. United is the only coast-to-coast airline with radar on every plane.” First Class or Air Coach, you can enjoy United’s Extra care — all the way!
