"The Phantom Freighter", Eastern Airlines 727 Add Video

This film promoting Eastern Airlines' cargo service opens with an Eastern 727 plane landing on an air strip (:55) and the doors open to reveal eight freight packs holding cargo (1:43). These shipments are brought to a lauder lifter and then to a skid (2:38). Rollers built into the floor of the plane enabled rapid movement of cargo (3:20). Large bags reading domestic air mail are shown and these are also transported in addition to cargo (3:48). Seats are being loaded into the plane as it will soon become a passenger plane (4:56). The crew is seen unloading crates of live lobster, tropical fish (5:15), and an artificial kidney machine which had been manufactured by DWS INC. (5:42). In the air freight office, paperwork must be completed to direct the freight to it?s final destination (6:27). On the plane, the remaining seats are set into place (7:04), and cargo flight 477 is now passenger flight 90 (7:41). Communication between the passenger control center and the Phantom freighter are constant and preparations for passengers to being boarding are conducted (8:38). The crew boards the plane about 45 minutes prior to take-off to ensure the planes readiness (9:28) and the aircraft is fueled (9:34). The flight engineer is seen making visual checks (9:55) and caterers load items such as soda cans, glasses and meals (10:37). The film draws to it?s end as the passengers board and it enters the run-way for take off (13:52). This has been an Education through Motivation (14:57) production.
