    Highlight for a secret!

    The skyway was really based on jet planes, because of the intrest in war

    It almost seems like the spoiler sentence was not completed; either that or I am just really dense :confused:

    And? What's your point?
    My fondest memory of Walt Disney was the day Disneyland opened....I was standing next to him - I was 12 years old - he was looking at the gate where people were coming through, he had his hands behind his back, he had a grin from ear to ear, but you could see the lump in his throat and the tear coming down his cheek because his dream had been realized. -- Mouseketeer Sharon Baird, "Mouseke-Memories", Walt Disney Treasures: The Mickey Mouse Club

    The origanal skyway buckets in 1956 (redone in 1958) had a nose in the front and wings coming out the sides and last had fin on back. In 1957 the wings were taken off for two reasons, first they were a pain for loading and unloading on the one side and because they looked tacky. Everything else was taken off in 1958 because they didn't like how it looked much and then after everything was off they got paint jobs, so that they wouldn't be the cemo green-brown colors, but colors you'd find on a regular skyway, you'd be able to see the new color scheme up untill they were taken out in 1994. Also, something I haven't mentioned yet, the origanals didn't have roofs and were considered unsafe, so in 1959 they put the roofs on the buckets.

    What's the source of this information? I don't recall ever hearing about the original round buckets being anything other than round buckets. And from what I've seen they've always had roofs.
