Does everybody know what today is?

Active Member

47 years ago today, on June 18, 1971, Southwest began Boeing 737 service from Dallas Love Field to San Antonio and Houston Intercontinental (they didn't move to Hobby until six month later). Thanks to Herb, Colleen, Rollin King, Lamar Muse, and the Southwest People for getting this tiny airline started and growing it into the major airline that it is today!
