ONA BIRDSTRIKE DRAMA
Moeīs personal memories


MOE THAWER

I worked with Overseas National Airways 
from 1968 to 1978 as a Lead Mechanic at 
JFK. I have to congratulate you and 
others who have kept the good old memories 
of ONA alive. I was happy to hear about 
your re-union and would have loved to be 
there. Was sorry to know that Mr. Hinckley 
passed away. He was a thorough gentleman 
and a good boss. I will keep visiting the 
ONA website to keep myself informed about 
ONA. If by any chance you have Sam Rogers 
e-mail, please forward this to him. I used 
to kid around with him a lot. I wonder where 
Sullivan, his work mate is? 

After ONA, I moved on to Braniff, which also 
went bankrupt and folded. 

Joe Moser, one of the ONA Maintenance 
Reps worked with Braniff. I used to reminisce 
with him the good times we had with Oh Never 
Again, meaning our good old ONA. 

When Braniff folded I joined Aeromexico. 
I had moved to Houston by then. Aeromexico 
was a good airline, but they also folded just 
before I quit them. We were all victims of 
airline demises. Went into motel and inn 
keeping business of my own after journeying 
with airlines. Retired in 2006 from working 
full time. At present time am working part 
time with my son who is in the construction 
business.
Please keep me informed. 
Loving regards, Moe Thawer
