In some of my picture books, you can clearly see quaint little curtains in
the windows of early DC-8s. I think I remember curtains across the
triangular Caravelle windows as a child (also business tables with rear
facing seats...)
Was the 707 the first airliner to feature plastic eyelids instead of
curtains?
