Feeling the Hump Day drag and looking to kill 30 minutes? Check out this fantastic promo video for LAX from 1963 to see a time capsule view of one of the busiest airports in the world. Intrepid Redditor u/737boeing unearthed this video, which was originally posted to the LAXAirlines YouTube account in 2014. Perfectly titled, "#1 World Way: The Story of Los Angeles International Airport,” the film takes you on a complete tour of LAX as well as the minutia of its inner workings. The airport has certainly come a long way since its humble beginnings in 1928, and what better way to celebrate that than with a film set to the rolling, upbeat music of 1960’s progress!
