Movies For Passengers on Long Plane Hops
FULL-LENGTH movies, news-reels, or shorts can be shown to airplane passengers by a new self-contained projection unit (right). Developed by the Air Transport Command and Army Signal Corps, the outfit also provides radio broadcasts and recorded music from sound films, a program being heard either through a loudspeaker or individual headsets. Plane movies entertained many of the War wounded who were evacuated over thousands of miles by air.
