Prettiest flight attendant ever

What history. What romance. And what class! So simple an image brings forth so many sentiments. Thank you for taking the time to post these.

For the person asking about the status of AOA, check out photo 62 of the RAScholefield Collection. The remarks there help to clear up some of the relationship between the names AOA and AA.

Thanks again!!!

Great shot! Note the West Coast Airlines receiving area sign visible in the background--given the date, this has to be somewhere in Washington State or Oregon. Anyone able to offer insight into this clue?

Thanks Mr Scholefield, there really is something dramatic early flying ventures

A visitor from - posted Sat July 9, 2011:
It says American Overseas Airlines, but the logo is from american airlines. So, this was a division of AA or what?

A visitor from - posted Sat July 9, 2011:
Interesting photo of about 400 pounds standing on that hatch. Wow.

Not sure what it is about this photo that keeps me marveling at it. A beautiful aircraft and wondering what those people are thinking as they walk up to it! Brilliant.

The days when pilots where heros, flight attendants sex symbols and flying was just exclusive as owning a Ferrari these days...

Great pic!
