Gosh James…fabulous pictures and writing as always. I love the 60s stewardesses. It makes me chortle as I was set to start up with Continental Airlines in San Diego in my early 20s after which the gasoline shortage hit so I reconsidered. Probably a great thing as it turns out I’m horribly afraid to fly….are you able to think about ME as a stewardess? I’m positive it will be funny as all get out however most likely not for the passengers. Voted up!
James; This is a good hub I flew lots of the plane you feature like the DC-7,DC-10,DC-9 B-727 and the A-300 Airbus D Was at SUN-FUN TODAY One of EAL’S DC-7’S that I flew within the late 50’s and early 60’s it is the solely flying one on the earth in the present day in passenger configuration. The first stewardesses labored on the Boeing 80s, which had passenger cabins similar to a luxurious Pullman railroad automotive. The passengers sat in plushly upholstered seats surrounded by gorgeous wood paneling and exquisite lights. Stewardesses would level out landmarks alongside the way in which to the mostly earplug-carrying passengers.
I’m not utterly defending the FAA, TSA or the airlines as I definitely have my gripes with each. There’s actually room for improvemt. I’m simply giving information. The safety guidelines are justified in order that they really don’t hassle me. Rude and obnoxious individuals do although. Treating an agent or flight crew member bad is not going to get your method or undo some other kind of irregular operation. Pushing it too far might get you arrested.

When the RAF started to withdraw, Newquay Airport was thought-about so necessary to the economic system of the county that Cornwall Council took it over, with the intention to develop it. The long-time period plan being that at some future level a prepared investor can be found to take ownership of it, at which era the Council would promote it on.
