Vintage 60" Flexible Flyer Airline Racer Sled - $120 (commack)
Great condition. Runners are straight.
Airline Racers are prized Flyers, often the pride of a collector's fleet.
Airline Series: The Airline sleds came out in 1935 with the ends of the runners turned back to the top of the last cross support. This major change was meant to prevent other sledders from impaling themselves on the sharp end of another's sled when running into them. There were numerous Airline models, each with its own name: Ace (37"); Pilot (41"); Patrol (44"); Pursuit (47"); Junior (51"); Chief (55"); Racer (60"); Cruiser (65"); and (108"). The Airline names were eventually dropped with a number/letter replacing them, but with the same lengths as before, and the length being the model number.
