The Flying Nun Lunch Box

Description (Brief)
This steel lunch box was manufactured by Aladdin Industries in 1968.The lunch box features images from the television show The Flying Nun that ran from 1967-1970 on ABC. The Flying Nun starred Sally Fields as Sister Bertrille, whose flying ability was explained by saying "When lift plus thrust is greater than load plus drag, anything can fly." Due to her small stature and heavily starched cornette, Sister Bertrille could catch a breeze and fly, helping her to solve the problem of the episode, but also causing a few along the way!
