SJC Turns 70

Time has flown by since February 1, 1949 when dedication ceremonies of the San José Municipal Airport were held to welcome the first commercial flight – a Southwest Airways DC-3 with two pilots, seven passengers and 2,550 baby chickens. Only the chickens got off at San José; the human passengers continued to Los Angeles. In celebration of our 70th birthday on 2/1/19, watch SJC grow and change through the decades.
