Wings of Man Book
Our sincere gratitude is extended to the former EARA President Michael Zall, who was so kind to donate 20 copies of the coffee-table book “Wings of Man”, as a way of raising donations so we could keep ongoing the financial support for the continuance of the EAL Radio Program and the Legacy of Eastern Airlines.
We are offering these books at $25.00 per book to members of our EAL Radio Show website. This cost includes postage in the USA to an address of your choice. What a wonderful gift this book would make as a Christmas gift for your loved ones or friends. Just send us the address of the person you want to give the book to as a Christmas gift, and it will be mailed right out to them.
If you haven’t read this book compiled by Vito Borrelli and Roland Moore you have missed a great Eastern History book, filled with Eastern employee interviews and marvelous pictures of Eastern aircraft. One you’ll be proud to display on your coffee-table. It’s a hardback with a beautiful dust cover and has 277 pages of Eastern Airlines.
You can order this on our website with a PayPal or other major credit card account. Or, send a check payable to the EAL Radio Show for $25 and we’ll get one right out to you. Your order helps fund the radio show and website.

“Thanksgiving Day Celebration
& The History of
Washington National Airport"
(Presently called The Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport)
Our next EAL Radio Show, Episode 483 program is Monday, November 23, 2020, and airs at 7:00 P. M. ET. Our topic for this evening is Thanksgiving Day Celebration and the “History of Washington National Airport”.
The airport's original name was Washington National Airport (DCA) and we also learned that The Washington National Airport Terminal and South Hangar Line was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997. Congress in 1998, adopted the present name to honor the honor the President, Ronald Reagan, and is located in Arlington, Virginia, the smaller of two airports that service this area. Eastern Airlines had gates and facilities and here are some well-known facts:
- In June 1940 Eastern Airlines operated the first Air Carrier flight into the new Washington Airport. Crew on the first DC-3 flight into Washington were Captain R Tucker and co-pilot Jerry Wood. Too, Eastern in 1951 gave the Smithsonian Air Museum an Eastern DC-3 airplane that was flown to Washington by Capt. Gene Ramsey.
- 1961- Air Shuttle started April 10, 1961 between LaGuardia and Boston and LaGuardia and Washington.
- 1964- First B-727 in service by any airline Feb. 1, 1964. First B-727 with passengers flew from Philadelphia to Miami via Washington.
See you at the Gate!

“EAL Tribute to Women in
World War I and II”
Our next EAL Radio Show program is scheduled for Monday, December 7, 2020 Episode 485 as the EAL Radio Show gives “Tribute to Women in World War I and II.” We are happy to share our program and give honors to all the women who came forth and joined in the country’s pursuit of happiness and peace. Our broadcast airs at 7:00 P. M. ET.
During World War I, nursing was the only service option permitted for women in the United States Navy before World War II. The role of women in the Navy broadened in 1916 with the passage of Public Law 241, which stated that any U.S. citizen could serve in the Navy.
Days following the Pearl Harbor attacks of December 7, 1941, the Navy began debating the integration of women in the Navy. The newly created War Manpower Commission declared itself unable to meet projected naval expansion and discovered that the Navy needed women to assist in the war.
Join us Monday, December 7, 2020 to hear our Hosts honor the ways that the Waves assisted the country during both World War I and II. Our Call-in number to our program is 213-816-1611 at 7:00 P. M. ET. Please, those that do call in but want to listen, mute your phone to avoid any background noises. You may also use your computer to hear us live by going to our Blog Talk website: www.blogtalkradio.com/capteddie as we depart the gate.
