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.
