Between July 8 and August 19, 1966 over 35,000 employees of five airlines went on strike nationwide shutting down over 40 percent of the nation's commercial air traffic. The strike resulted in a major wage victory against President Lyndon Johnson's attempts to control inflation during the Vietnam War.
