Air Canada - "Christmas Past"
December 1952The ACFamily Network and The NetLetter have had many past issues of the Between Ourselves magazine graciously donated by our readers.
Once a week we issue a "NetLetter" to our subscribers with a bit of nostalgia (actually a lot of nostalgia) with pictures and stories to bring back memories of days gone by.

Clicking on the image below will open a "Flip Book" where you can peruse this issue from December 1952 Online. You can Zoom in and out and flip through the pages like a book.

We have plans to convert and upload all the issues we have (we have a lot) to a special area on the ACFamily Network. This project will be using donations from our NetLetter readers to cover costs.

Air Canada - "Christmas Present"
A great job by all involved in producing this great Christmas video with a catchy tune to boot. It was just released on December 20, 2011 so most of you probably haven't had a chance to see it yet. It took a full week of shooting and editing covering three provinces and over 300 different shots. The theme (as you may have noticed) is "Gonna Get You Home". Click on image for video.
