• Flygkartor AA Route Maps • Air_Maps
These maps show American Airlines Inc. system of flight routes around 1945.
The first version of these maps was published in 1938!
• AA System Overview Map with nice drawings.
Navigation was made with Radio beacons (6-stars in maps) and Light beacons (5-stars in maps).
- Radio beacons at airports, and at long legs also some inbetween. Light beacons much closer to each other.
