September 6, 1970 - Sammy Davis, Jr arrives for concert

On this day back in 1970, Sammy Davis, Jr. arrived at Albany Airport in his own chartered jet.
More than 40 people were on board -- including his orchestra and backup singers.
He was heading to SPAC for a 3:30 concert, which sold out.
Davis had just recovered from pneumonia -- and we reported in 1970 that he "looked tired."
Davis' appearance capped what had been SPAC's most successful season to that point.
