First off today in 1958 we have QANTAS becoming the first foreign airline permitted to fly across the United States.
A major milestone in aviation history came in 1976 when British Airways received its first Concorde.
Many thousands of miles away and 7 years later the small country of Bhutan saw it's new airline. Druk Air, start operations.
After all these positives we unfortunately finish on a negative, at least for Donbassaero, who ceased operations this day in 2013.
