1962, from Detroit via Memphis, enroute to Greenville Air Force Base in Mississippi to get married! He was already there. Remember getting off the plane in Mississippi in July and the heat hit me like a ton of bricks. I remember saying, "How can anyone LIVE here?".

Years later, Iceland Air had cheap flights to Europe which I took often. Landing for a stopover in Iceland one November, remember saying, "How can anyone LIVE here?".

Braniff was a wonderful airline, so wonderful that they put themselves out of business. Their motto was "Flying Colors," and each airplane was painted in a different, vibrant hue. Turned out that the brighter the color, the heavier the pigments in the paint. Their bright "Flying Colors" cost them a fortune to hump around the sky. So did their seats, which they insisted be all leather, both in first class and coach.

A very nice airline, but a bit too clever for their own good.

There is a "Super G Constellation" sitting on the tarmac over at the "Fantasy of Flight" attraction, just a few miles from Lakeland, Florida.
I sleep very well on flights,,,,,but,,,,,I'm usually the pilot.
