of Overseas National Airways
I was given the opportunity and a class date to fly the Lockheed L188 Electra for Overseas National Airways in May of 1968. I was living in Wisconsin and was very excited about finally, after many applications, getting the big chance to fly for an airline. There were no guarantees--I still had to make it through ground school, simulator and flight training. The training went very well and I was greatly impressed with the very thorough curriculum and the professional instructors we had. Dave Lampard and Tom Sellner were my flight instructors. They were both superb pilots and great guys to be around. I also had a good bunch of guys as my classmates. We often studied together and helped each other out with problem areas. The friends that I remember well were Siggy Brege, Dick McConnell, the Dee brothers--Neff and Lee.

"Captains Bill Holloway, Erik Moberg,
Del Hollenbeak and Tom Fenwick;
flight engineers Ted Moore, Duane Gibeau,
and Ed Chandler; navigator G. Keating
are just a few that come to mind."
I think I know who the first officer is in the crew DC-8 photo. Siegvard Brege was in my Electra class in 1968. He was a great guy who flew fighters with the Swedish air force before coming to ONA. His friends called him Sieggy for short. He was #90 on the 1977 seniority list a few numbers ahead of me. Larry McKenzie, OGDEN UTAH
