AROUND THE GLOBE
WITH ONA

Longest Flight

Flying from NY to McGuire
to Travis to Hickam to Clark,
Philippines to Bangkok
to India to Cairo to Frankfurt to
McGuire to NY and never getting off
the plane - DC8-63F.
4 pilots, 2 engineers and 2 navigators
and no passengers- they opened the
hold and closed it and we went on to
the next stop where they did the same
thing - wonder what we were hauling?
Lots and lots of wonderful memories
and super life experiences!
Best from Lou

I am always reminded of Ted and Lois
Thornton being killed in a car accident
in NJ on the way home from JFK.
He was a Capt. and good friend who took
his wife on several flights I was

Marilyn White Doolittle
The reunion was the greatest! I hadnīt seen 
some of the girls in over 35 years.  
It started at noon--still going strong 
at 9--I stayed in N.Y. for three days--
didn't want to miss anything.  
On Monday morning I flew with Betty 
Broderick--Pam Suett to Belize (Central 
America) for 5 days.  
Most of my best women friends are the 
O.N.A. girls.  Love  Marilyn

The ONA reunion was a blast! There was quite a few people I hadn't seen in ages. I joined ONA in 1969. Lots of screaming and kissing! And even tears...boy how I miss those good olde days. We were young and fun and whipped around all different places in the world like we were going to the corner drug store. And we forged friendships that are still in place 34 years later! Amazing! Sandy
