Wiesbaden, a lovely place to be


FRANKFURT - WIESBADEN - GERMANY

I always enjoyed flying to Frankfurt, Germany and going to Wiesbaden to stay at the Nassauer Hof Hotel there. The food I thought in Germany was the best and the beer and bratwurst couldn’t be beat, and the people there very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed going down to the Officer’s Club to eat also at times. One trip our whole crew went across the street to the gambling casino and we all put $20.00 each together to bet with and let one crewmember do the betting. We later left there with everybody’s money back plus $5.00 profits each. The gambling casino in Wiesbaden Later the crews stayed downtown Frankfurt, I think at a Continental hotel. Also let me say the ONA maintenance people headed up by Herb Eckhardt always had all maintenance problems taken care of, in a correct and timely manner with the utmost professionalism. Our operation people there in Frankfurt were always on top of the whole situation and kept all the crews updated to latest changes. On a whole I’d say most all ONA ground station personnel, at all our stops did a fantastic job, with what they had to work with.
