This is one of the most spot-on predictions I've ever encountered–not because of the aeroplane-to-home radiotelephone, but because in 1942 it accurately predicts how much leg room there is in a modern aircraft.  The only way this chap could fit in that seat would be if his knees were jammed up against his chest.
