THE SAN FRANCISCO TRAIL

Young and happy with an exiting work and proud 
working for ONA having the emblema on my chest. 
This is a story that can happen to anyone at any 
time. We had a ferry flight coming in from Tokyo to 
Travis Air Force base in the northern California. 
Being a bit tired and worn off after the flight 
standing in the front of the terminal building 
I felt a bit for going to the toilet.

I told the crew, whom all were waiting for a 
limousine to take us to San Francisco. 
I went down and having the ONA wings on my shirt 
and two stripes on my shoulders felt very proud.
 The whole terminal was crowded by soldiers and 
some were looking at me as I strolled down, all 
probably wondering who the hell I was. I went 
down to the toilet and as usual I always put 
some toiletpaper on top of the toiletring before 
doing my needs.

When ready I did as you have to do, put my 
trousers on and went up the stairs and in to the 
hall and as I was walking through down again I 
felt that a lot of the people in the hall were
looking at me. 

I felt like a lion, proud, young and happy. 
Coming out to the ONA crew I leaned against 
the wall. I felt like a king! Suddenly 
one of the stewardesses asked me - what the 
hell is flying in the back of  you? 
I turned around and found myself having a 
long peace of toilet paper trailing after me. 
I had actually been walking through the hall 
with a long peace of toilet paper hanging 
from the top of the back of my trousers  
(probably 50 cm), off course I directly 
understood why people were looking at me 
while passing through the terminal.  

The whole crew were laughing and at that 
moment I felt like wanting to disappear 
into the ground, I felt a terrible shame 
and all of my pride was suddenly gone. 
I didnt say a word in the limousine. 
Since then I do check the back of my 
trousers at all times leaving the bathroom.

Captain Bill Tedder, 1966

Captain Billy Tedder told me that the
cockpit got extra money for performing
the Vietnam flights, but cabin crew had no
extra money! I have kept my cabin-checkout
for DC-7B among my memorabilia.

GORANīS THRILLING CONTRIBUTION
TO THE ONA VIETNAM COLLECTION


I had a flight from Honolulu/
Wake/Okinawa and from there ferry to
Tokyo. Mostly I was assigned to the
flight route McGuire/ Anchorage/Tokyo
roundtrip and some time to Guam.

ANCHORAGE WESTWARD
NOW ANCHORAGE HILTON
I had one Vietnam trip from Tokyo 
to Vietnam. I think it was Da Nang. 
The cabin crew wasnt allowed to 
leave the aircraft but had to stay 
on board. Me being male was allowed 
to deplane to clear paperwork before 
departure. I know there was talk about 
bulletholes on the fuselage, but cant 
say whether it was on our plane or 
someone elses - everybody were very 
quiet and serious. 
It was very nervous. Anyway we left 
very soon and went back to Tachikawa 
AFB Tokyo.

Dispatch after that didnt want me on 
any more Vietnam flights since they 
rather assigned beautiful ladies on 
these flights! I was put purser on 
DC-7B to transport homecoming 
deserting / delinquent GIs, flying 
Oakland / Corpus Christi and Fort Smith. 

Those were horrible flights. The MP 
werent allowed any weapons in the cabin 
and the delinquents were loosened from 
their handcuffs. They were served box 
lunches. The only cabin crew assigned on 
those flights were me, being the purser 
and another steward Jurand, I think he 
was Russian. I dont remember the Vietnam 
flights very much but these other flights 
I remember well since they were really 
rough and from what I understand 
dangerous and risky.

When the sun hits the sky like a big pizza pie, 
thatīs amore ....... wonderful memories of 
stewardesses of 1966, hitting metropolitan 
New York sitting in a top down American car 
cruising along Fifth Avenue at midnight 
listening to the radio playing Strangers 
in the Night, Frank Sinatra and 
glorious airline life, life took on dimensions 
not even dreamed of for a bunch of 
unexperienced girls just out of highschool. 
Las Vegas champagne flights, Vietnam 
missions and the Shriners to Hawaii!
The variation  was as wild as the 
different assignments.
