Here we have a collection of rare, short film clips from the 1950s and the 1960s. The Golden Era of travel through the jet-age seen in these various moments captured in time —  Jens Lilienthal Collection

(Below) This short clip shows passengers, boarding a contemporary colored Lufthansa 707-400 at Cologne Bonn Airport (CGN). It is about to depart for New York. The registration D-ABOD was later changed to D-ABOB and the aircraft is still on display at Hamburg Airport (HAM) today — Jens Lilienthal
