On Friday, March 2nd, 2012 the last Continental Airlines flight occurred. The airline has been phased out and taken over by United Airlines. Continental began its service in 1934 and, of course, flew throughout the 1970s.
In order to keep the company flying high in our memories (sorry for the awful pun) let’s grab a look at these nifty photos from the 1970s (courtesy of HuffPost) and take a gander at a 70s-era commercial.
