TAILWINDS

EXTRA!! EXTRA!! EXPRESS TO NEW YORK
Washington to New York In 68 minutes. Shades of Paul Revere!! But it's a fact that the Ludington Express, which streaks northward through the sky twice a day, has been known to make it in less than 60. If you were traveling on the easy payment plan you would probably be at your destination before the first installment was due. 

The graceful low-winged white Lockheed Orion, most recent addition to the already large number of planes in service, takes off with a full load of six passengers on practically every trip. A few moments in the air and Washington and Baltimore are both history, and they do say the "regulars" now start putting on their coats and hats when they spy old William Penn at Philadelphia. That saves time, for it's no more than the shake of a lamb's tail (and a darn little lamb at that) before you arrive at Newark. 
If you can judge by the reservation sheet, that EXPRESS was just what the doctor ordered for the busy air-minded business man. 

There are two Lockheeds- one in the morning and one on the afternoon run.
