Two tour leaders (foreground) make sure everyone is happy aboard a roomy Convair 990 jet that was a Modern Air Transport charter flight called "Polar Bird II." The plane carried 48 passengers via the North Pole and South Pole on a unique 32-day around-the-world tour organized by Hemphill World Air Cruises of Los Angeles, California, for the Travelers' Century Club. It was the most expensive tour of the time (1970) at $9,760 per person.
