The color edition of Concourse G brings back the excitement of TWA and yesterday with close to 200 pictures, most in color. If you enjoyed the B/W edition you'll love it in color! Was there a "golden age" in Commercial Aviation? If so, when; and what was it like to work at the world's then busiest airport boarding passengers, selling tickets, and managing? This is the inside scoop told by a TWA agent/manager/director of almost 30 years who partners with a TWA Hostess of 34 years in this exploration of the mountaintops and dark valleys of commercial aviation. You'll see behind the scenes and meet the people, experiencing how they relaxed and worked in the 60's, 70's and 80's. Learn how a heroic Hostess thwarted a deadly skyjacking and escaped death in the hands of a madman. The book is filled with never before published photographs and items from the two author's personal collections. Here is history, romance, and what it was REALLY like during those chaotic years when commercial flying grew up!
