I'm grinning like a fool thanks to this wonderful photo of the Rocket Jets (and the Peoplemover). Now that's a Tomorrowland! I also like the lady in the screaming-pink dress, the buckaroo in his cowboy hat (or is it a cavalry hat?), and the friendly hipster in the foreground. Groovy, daddy-o!
The Autopia was still sponsored by Atlantic Richfield, and their emblem was this impressive eagle, wings spread as if in flight. It resembles a giant hood ornament. Do you think that this was saved when it came down, or was it destroyed? I'd like to believe that it sits in somebody's backyard.
