Spectacular ONA by Bill Parks!

they had such a cargo!

Bill & pals during Jeddah duty



Layover in Germany

Most of us who flew with Captain Milt 
Marshall and Bob Travelute to Germany 
would know the lady in the Bratwurst 
stand where we always ended up, 
sometimes for hours and sometimes for 
more. I believe she was Russian and 
she would kick the locals off the chairs 
for all us crew men and women. 
The other pictures would be well known 
by anyone flying through Wake Island. 
I have a couple of the old DC 7´s that 
I will send over.

ONA had the nicest FA´s

But ONA is so far back now I'd have to 
find my old log books up in the loft to 
remember my many days with all those past 
memories. 

I recall doing all that DC-7 PT at Lake 
City Florida, but was furlowed so many 
times I get mixed up with the dates!

Sometimes I tell my experiences while 
flying with Airborne Express and with 
pilots no older than my grandsons and 
I think many times they hardly believed 
me.

I gave up running the old Liberty Ship 
steam engine but hope to visit my old 
Aircraft Carrier Midway this winter out 
in CA. 

I still walk some 2 1/2 miles per day and 
work out in the gym in the afternoons. 
I have many grand kids and even 5 or 6 
great grandkids so I keep busy. 


Aircraft carrier USS Midway



“Midway Magic” is a historical fact.  
It was a term known throughout the 
Navy as the USS Midway steamed through 
a 47-year career of service to the 
country.  Imagine, a carrier that was 
commissioned in 1945 and served as a 
flagship in Desert Storm in 1991.
  
No other carrier served as long as 
the USS Midway.

Alaska 1969

I recall breaking my foot up in Alaska 
in 69 and Dick Hall had to continue 
my trip over to Nam. He had just 
purchased a considerable amount of 
king crab as he was expecting to 
return home. The many Haji trips 
plus the ship hotel and the 
rocking boat are also fond 
memories. 

So enough now, will review my log 
books and come up with some stories, 
I have many and miss those good 
old days. 

I wore so many different uniforms 
but ONA was always the best! 

Plus they had the best FA 's ....
