Eastern Airlines was based out of Miami and once owned by World War I flying ace Eddie Rickenbacker, the same man Rickenbacker Causeway was named after. This romantic airline was one of the big four and had its own theme ride at Walt Disney World: If You Had Wings. The plane pictured is the Super-C Constellation powered by four turbo compound engines delivering 13,000 horsepower for “super speed and super dependability” flying over Miami Beach. Eastern really was the Wings of Man. Circa 1950s. Our pillow measures approximately 16” x 10” of a linen-cotton blend cover with concealed zipper and a feather/down insert. It is washable, gentle, non-phosphate. Made in Florida. Videos show flights of Super-C Constellation from NY to Miami, part I and II with Arthur Godfrey.
