It happened on October 9th: First phone call between a moving car and a plane

AT&T is responsible for the first-ever phone call between a moving car and a plane, which occurred on October 9th, 1947, over Wilmington, Delaware.

If you think today's cell phone charges are tough to swallow, consider that this first mobile service cost $170 a month, plus up to $4 for each call, and you needed an 80 lb piece of phone equipment.
