INGRID NILSSON, STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN

I was in Vietnam around the end of February
in 1967. I remember so well since we 
celebrated my birthday there! We were 
stationed for one month in Tokyo and had 
layovers both at Tachikawa AFB as well as 
in Tokyo proper, at the Hilton and another 
hotel called the New Hotel, that I heard 
has now burnt down. I remember walking in 
a beautiful hotel garden.

Senior stewardess on the Vietnam flights 
originating from Tokyo first to Danang, 
was Teddy Pakosta, junior stews were beside 
myself Eivor Johansson Hedin, Marie Warberg 
Curman and Ayla van Mynden, donīt remember 
male crew! As I recall it we only had one 
flight into Danang, since the situation got 
dangerous there and next flights we made 
went to Cam Ranh Bay, I think. 

I remember at Tachikawa AFB at layover 
I had photographed on the base 
(which of course was prohibited!) and an 
official came and took my film away!
But I had already at an earlier time 
taken photos which I will search for ... 
I remember when at Camh Ranh we were not 
allowed to stand in the airplane doors 
due to risk of shooting - we examined 
gunshots on the airplane tail after 
returning to Tachikawa at one time.
