US WORLDWIDE 1968 - 1976
I started in Oct 1968 and left in 76.
I moved to the LAX base in 69 and stayed
until it closed. I mostly flew with Joann
Stabel, Linda Ausness, Annette Schmitt,
Margi Mostue, Kathy Newman, Mary Anne
Pryor, Angelika Villagrana, Maralyn
Porras, Cecelia Overthrow, Ruth Perkins
and Nancy Gibbs.
In addition I worked with Bobbie Francis as
a union rep for much of the time.
We spent a lot of time flying the Pacific
routes. Tokyo, Viet Nam, Honolulu and of
course the Hadj. My memories are too
numerous to mention! Just would say
everyday was an adventure and they were
the best years of my life.
Tachikawa Air Base near Tokyo was almost
a second home for a few years and the
7 day Honolulu layovers were incredible.
Since the LA base was so small we knew each
other like sisters. We were one big
dysfunctional family and although we whined,
complained to and about one another (like
all families) we were a close and caring group.
I have keep many of these beautiful, vital,
amazing women as friends to this day.
