U.S. Census Bureau Daily Feature For October 7
WASHINGTON, Oct. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 7: AIRLINE MOVIES
Profile America — Sunday, October 7th. One of the few joys left in long-distance flying is to sit back and enjoy a feature-length movie. But recently, one major airline announced it will be ending this entertainment, joining several low-cost airlines in the policy. The first movies shown in the air were a newsreel and two cartoons, shown on this date in 1929 aboard a Ford Trimotor operated by Transcontinental Air Transport. Regular in-flight movie service began in July 1961 on a Trans World Airline flight from New York to Los Angeles. The movie shown was "By Love Possessed." Now, more than 4 million passengers fly between New York and Los Angeles every year.
