food for special people (travel agency
owners whom ONA was trying to impress)
with special leather dresses for us.
At least four rows of seats were
removed to store all the special food
- and then disaster struck.
Unbeknownst to us, everything was packed
with dry ice and frozen solid.
So much for special flights ... I wonder
to this day if ONA ever got their
Marianne Hammarberg, Myhrberg,

Everybody lift your feet when I tell you!A gag the crews returning to the States would do to the troops was to have the Senior announce that during takeoff she was going to come on the P/A and tell everybody to lift their feet so as to lessen the weight of the aircraft. So about 50 seconds into the takeoff roll on would come the announcement and everytime 100% would lift their feet up. They were amazed when the nose of the aircraft would just about then come up and get airborne. The F/A never let on it was a gag. The guys loved it.
