His various employments listed as: Actor, Author, Comic, Laundry messenger, Liquor salesman, Lumberman, Newspaper writer, Road builder. (add to that British Commando)
Ah ha! I knew it! I seen him a million times and could not for the life of me think of his name.

Re: Air Hostesses

No like fantasy? OK, how about some class photos?






These were the graduating cl***** from PSA (1970) immediately before the red FMB was adopted as official uniform. No idea why the girls are squatting on those bushes tho.

Re: Air Hostesses

Air hostesses have been the subject of literature, toys and memorabilia too.

Here are some examples for all the W900 muso's.

You obviously don't know much about photography. This is a well-known photographic technique used to add perspective. It is called "B&B", which is short for "bush on bush". It has been used since the early 50's by many of the greats of our era.

Let's see, how about one of each and you can vote which one you prefer:

Pan Am stewardess showing a lot of leg!


or PSA stewardess showing somewhat more - you decide!
the second picture shows the perfect air hostess

In the spirit of international cooperation, I'll let Alligator have first choice and I'll take the other one. On the return flight we can trade hostesses.

She won't mind at all, because she won't know.

Re: Air Hostesses

This is perhaps the silliest looking hostess uniform I've come accross. The thing that makes it even worse is that it is from France! How could they??

Yeah, it's terrible. Fancy dressing up your hosties to look like Beriev amphibians.

Boy is this post going to look silly when you fix the picture URL

Apologies! Looks like my photobucket account is having a liitle turn. The picture of the Beriev seems to have become the default for all pics posted yesterday, even though they were all correct at time of posting. More embarrassing still is that the pic of 2Lt Kamenitsa's B-24 crew on Oh Bugger was also substituted. Hope bug now fixed.

P.S. - you will see what I meant about a silly uniform too!

Re: Air Hostesses

Ah, I see now. Would be better if they HAD dressed up as Beriev amphibians...

Cracking set of pins on the hostie in the previous post by the way
