The Friendly Skies Air Atlas by United Air Lines

United's route network across the continental U.S & Hawaii from 1973.

From 1966 until 1977 United Air Lines published a series of Air Atlas' with a range of different cover designs. The map changed slightly too over the years. This edition is from 1973.

/* we should always add a keyframe before movement, bearing in mind that we can scroll backwards */ .cover { bottom: 0; opacity: 1; } .united-map { bottom: -100%; opacity: 0; transform: scale(1); }

Busy and colourful, excludes Alaska.

.cover { bottom: 100%; opacity: 0; } .united-map { bottom:auto; opacity: 1; transform: scale(1); transform-origin:0 0; background-size:97% auto; background-repeat: no-repeat; background-position: center center; }ยง

United operated a busy network of flights out of the East Coast. Newark, Boston and D.C among others.

.united-map { transform: scale(2.5) translate(-60%, 0%); transform-origin: 0 0; background-repeat: no-repeat; background-size:100%; opacity:1; bottom:auto; background-position: 0px 0%; }

From here let us fly west to Chicago.

.united-map { transform: scale(2.5) translate(-40%, 0%); transform-origin: 0 0; }

United too, was busy down in Florida.

.united-map { transform: scale(2.5) translate(0, 0); transform-origin: 100% 40%; }

All United maps, without fails always had a section devoted to Hawaii often designed separately.

.united-map { transform: scale(2.5) translate(0, 0); transform-origin: 10% 40%; }

The map is full of useful information about the land beneath you. Details about geology, pressure, water and a lot more.

.united-map { transform: scale(3.5) translate(0, 0); transform-origin: 0 0; background-size:100%; background-position: 0 0; }

Again, no Alaska. It may be that United simply didn't fly to Alaska in 1973.

The Friendly Skies of Your Land. United's ad for High Sierra and The Rockies, both popular winter sport destinations, appeared on the back the map.
