I became aware of this map when a Flat Earther used this map as evidence for straight flight paths on Gleason's map. I was tempted to post this in "humor" because this map basically debunks itself: with a high-resolution version (5086x3411), you can read the corner inserts (the meme version covers up the most damning insert), and they clearly state that
  • this is a North Polar Azimuthal Equidistant Projection of the globe
  • the distortion increases rapidly from the equator outwards
  • the connections are drawn as straight lines for convenience
  • the actual flight paths should be shown curved to the south
  • the shortest distances are great circle arcs.
  • it is copyright 1943 in Buffalo, New York
  • it shows "miles in 10° of latitude" decreasing from the equator on southward
  • it has a sliding distance scale by latitude that shows the distortion of this map
  • the mileages on the red routes show globe distances
