Peekaboo bag? No, a survival hood (May, 1968)

Peekaboo bag? No, a survival hood

It’s too bad that the pretty (take our word for it) girl shown here has to play peekaboo to get her point over. She is demonstrating the use of a plastic “survival hood” for airline passengers. Made by the G. T. Schjeldahl Co., Northfield, Minn., it provides protection against smoke and gas inhalation while escaping from a crashed plane.

    I’ve seen several air safety experts on TV over the last couple of years say that they always have one of these in their carry-ons.
    The modern ones have air filters and are transparent.

    Stannous:Transparent makes a whole lot more sense. I couldnt figure out how she planned to find her way off the plane before suffocating.
