Frye calls for Worldwide Transport System
In 1945, Jack Frye stated - "The pioneering spirit which developed this country", he said "went into territorial hibernation when our development had reached the Atlantic to the Pacific oceans. We have been a rich nation living off the fat of our richly developed country. We didn't really need foreign trade, or so we thought, but now we face a most difficult future. We face the end of this war with much of our natural resources used up. Our government will be in debt 300 billion dollars (wow, what we would give for that today!) or more. We probably will have 15 million or more people facing unemployment. What are we going to do about it?"
Thus Jack Frye and TWA on the cutting edge envisioned the new global reach of the Constellation being just around the corner. A feat full of challenges, rewards and a future of epic commerce proportions.
