Astro Jets, July 1960
Today’s first photo provides a double bonus: a shot of the defunct Astro Jets (RIP, 1966) AND Jordan’s buddy Pugsly Addams. I am assuming today’s Astro Orbiter is supposed to replace this former attraction, however, it doesn’t begin to touch this way cool retro design.
For those who are not into Tomorrowland, I have dipped into the Rainbow Ridge files again for this Pack Mule shot, also from July 1960. Jordan—if you look closely, you will see Pugsley straddled precariously atop a mule; give that animal an extra carrot! See more vintage Disneyland photos at my website.
