August 1953 and kids are allowed to climb on this F-84C. The Boston Daily Globe of 8 August 1953 does not confirm there was an airshow, but does carry an article on the 102nd Fighter Interceptor Wing of the Massachusetts ANG, with a photo showing probably the same F-84. The unit had been 'stripped of jets' three years earlier, because these 'early model jets were lacking in performance' and 'difficult to service, too'. Wikipedia says the wing flew F-84Bs and then Mustangs again until they were replaced by the F-94 Starfire in 1954. Photo by: Edmund Mitchell / Boston Public Library

The Mite moved under its own power during the parade, something unlikely to be approved in the 21st century. It is seen here passing 47 West Hastings Street. CF-HFO was destroyed in a hangar fire at Edmonton Air Base in March 1967. Photo from: City of Vancouver Archives

Another load of passenger's luggage heads for BEA's "Pionair" Class Dakota for a UK internal flight. G-AKJH served the RAF in Southeast Asia during WW2 as KG572. It served BEA from November 1950 until April 1961. Another BEA Pionair and an "Admiral" Class Vickers Viking 1B are also on the apron with an Aer Lingus Dakota at far left. Donald Douglas's DC-3 still reigned supreme in those days!
