This is an image of a Vintage Flying A Gasoline.
Flying A was a brand of gasoline that was produced by Tidewater Petroleum, which was a US-based oil and gas company that was founded in 1915. The company was headquartered in Los Angeles, California, and it operated a network of gas stations throughout the western United States.
The Flying A brand of gasoline was introduced by Tidewater Petroleum in the early 1930s, and it quickly became one of the company's most popular products. The name "Flying A" was chosen to evoke a sense of speed and adventure, and it featured a distinctive logo that depicted a winged letter "A."
During the 1930s and 1940s, Tidewater Petroleum sponsored a number of aviation-related events and activities, including airshows and cross-country races. The company also provided fuel for many pioneering aviators, including Charles Lindbergh and Amelia Earhart.
After World War II, Tidewater Petroleum began to diversify its business and expand into other areas, such as chemical production and real estate development. In the 1960s, the company merged with Union Oil Company of California to form Union-Tidewater Oil Company, which later became Unocal Corporation.
Today, the Flying A brand of gasoline is no longer in production, but it remains an iconic symbol of the early days of American aviation and the growth of the oil and gas industry in the western United States.
