NWA History Video

Flying TPAC NW has a lovely NWA History video on the AVOD system. It shows NW planes from different eras taking off, including mention of the pioneering NW polar routes and the Shemya-era when NW had a private island in Alaska for flight refueling. The video also features a cool techno soundtrack. I have not flown across the Pacific since July, so it may already be gone from the planes. I've searched for the video on YouTube, but to no avail. Does anyone know if it is available online?

Is it the same one mentioned in thezipper's post? If so this should probably be merged into that thread.

I am talking about a different video...I believe it was created for the A330 launch. The video referenced by the previous poster was created for the 60th anniversary of NW flights across the Pacific, I have never seen it on the AVOD systems.

Hopefully someone will find it online and post it here, I know I'd be interested in watching it.

I recorded this on a recent flight. Maybe somebody from NW could upload a better quality one than what I managed to get?
