Hey Hey ONA!
FLYING TIGERS 2007
BARBARA (FISH) MCGEE
I am hoping someone may have a picture of me.
I flew from 1969 to 1975. Most of the time I
flew out of New York and crew members a lot of
the time were Ginette Kaiser, Brenda Spencer,
Sandy Briggs, Gail McNamara, Cheryll Peck,
Patti Pluguez – I was a bridesmaid at Patti’s
wedding. I flew Hadj and also the Vietnam refugee
flights when we were pretty much based in Guam.
Photo left from right is Cecelia McCloy, Amos Blum
and Barbara peeking out behind the girl holding the
birthday cake! The F/A top left is Gail McNamara,
and Barbara recognises some of the other faces but
does not remember their names. We are grateful to
get the other crew identified!
Barbara was a F/A with ONA from 1969-1974 and flew
the Hajj and Vietnam flights. She flew a lot with
Ginette Kaiser, Gail McNamara and Sandy Briggs.
She also flew out of LA whenever possible and did
eventually move to California.
Barbara was from England like Cecelia McCloy and
tried to bid the London flights. Barbara graduated
the September 1969 class and is very much looking
forward to connecting with former colleagues and
"The training class of September 69 became laid off
shortly after when ONA lost a contract. Several of
us went down to Fort Lauderdale, courtesy of Flying
Tigers. Myself, Gail Lester and Debbie Plumber
spent three fun filled months in Fort Lauderdale
working as cocktail waitresses. Complete with skimpy
outfits, fishnet stockings and push up bras.
All so innocent. Anyone out there remember?
It might be fun to go back for reunion.
