The thought behind this month's cover pictorial was to fly you back to the golden age of aviation. Photographer Tony Kelly brought four Playmates (Miss February 2014 Amanda Booth, Miss August 2013 Val Keil, Miss July 2013 Alyssa Arce and Miss October 2012 Pamela Horton) to a former Air Force base in Victorville, California that now serves as an airplane boneyard and transformed them into the best-looking flight crew you'll ever find.
