B.O.A.C. via Honolulu and Tokyo to Hong Kong - the best in the air at the lowest fare.


Italian portrait painter and poster designer Angelo Cesselon was best known for his work on cinema posters in Rome in the immediate post-war period. But his talents were recognized as a painter also, and among others Popes John XXIII and John Paul II sat for him. Here Cesselon's talent is used B.O.A.C. to demonstrate the international scope of the in-flight crew working on the airline's 'round-the-world' services.
