Sport Flying with vintage United Airlines cards

Sport flying is an interesting concept. I can’t think of any other sporting activity centered around something that many people fear. Well, climbing and heights, I suppose, but humans have been climbers since before they could walk and climbing a rock or mountain up thousands of feet is a little different than climbing into a craft that will take you up thousands of feet. With the former, you at least stay planted firmly on the ground. I understand people having a fear of flying, to a point. I think those people are also kind of pessimistic. I mean, they’re obviously focusing on a worst-case scenario, right? There are 2 fear of flying varieties: one is a fear of crashing and the other is basically agoraphobia and they’re afraid they’ll have a panic attack while stuck in the plane. Both are very negative attitudes, if you ask me. The other end of that spectrum are the people participating in the Red Bull Air Race. Fearless. Check it out when you can, it’s amazing.

Unopened United Airlines cards circa 1969-76! Very fortunate the dust cover was in such good shape because its graphics are AMAZING! The DC also provides a flap in the compartment to conceal cash or other thin secrets.
