American Airlines recently celebrated an important moment in the history of the company and commercial aviation in general. In 1964, Capt. Dave Harris became the first African-American pilot to fly for a major carrier. That same year, Joan Dorsey became the airline's first African-American flight attendant.
The two were honored at the C.R. Smith Aviation Museum in Fort Worth this week.
The airline provided some great photos of Harris and Dorsey, which we thought Sky Talk readers might enjoy.
