I still remember the excitement of my first trip as an unaccompanied minor (10 years old), June 24, 1972 on SO 91. I travelled IAD
. I remember the "smiley face" on the nose of the DC-9 as I walked toward the airstairs. I especially remember the beautiful flight attendants in black hot pants and silver go-go boots. The round trip, walk up, coach airfare was $136.00 - which I earned over one year by mowing yards and shoveling snowed in driveways!
