Pandemic Post Office

At this time, we’re all relying so much on airmail, and yet it’s barely 100 years old! On this day in 1918, the USA Post Office made the first scheduled airmail trip between New York and Washington, D.C. Here’s some fun original newsreel footage of that important day! Keep an eye out for President Woodrow Wilson, and the Curtiss “Jenny” Army plane repurposed as a mail plane.
