Ready to Fly?
Here’s something you don’t see every day. This photo, snapped in 1959, shows a Swedish stewardess named Birgitta Lindman and a showgirl. Lindman was called to inspect the showgirl costume following the new that the stewardesses would soon be getting shorter uniforms.
Just a year prior, Lindman had shot to fame after appearing on the cover of Life magazine. She had competed to be the covergirl for the issue, beating out 53 others. This gives a whole new meaning to the term in-flight entertainment!
