SAS: Copenhagen/Stockolm-Zurich-Monrovia

This is a fascinating group of first-day covers, celebrating the launch of DC-8 service to Monrovia by Scandinavian Air Service in 1960. The route seemed to assemble passengers from SAS's Nordic hubs at Zurich, and from there fly to Liberia-- one envelope declares the service to be "direct" so perhaps this leg was non-stop. SAS today has no African routes.
