Rich turquoise water color indicates that the plane is getting close to Turks and Cacios which signals time for descent from FL330 to 10,000 ft

Outstanding nostalgia ... I've flown into Miami during that time period ... faked a severe fear of flying to get extra attention from the stews (who were indeed, hot)

Excellent post as always Aharon!

I've seen those girls lately.

Unfortunately they are all 50-60 years old now and fly for AA and Delta and usually in a surly mood.. <_<

Great shots and story Aharon!

My have times have changed in the commercial aviation world.  No longer called "Stews"...and you're in big trouble if you call them that...they take GREAT offense to it!

 

My last 727 flight was a United (tri-color) from KATL to KDEN.

 

Oh, I love the paintjob too.  :biggrin:

Though this has nothing to do with Air Florida but it was an airline from the same area and era. Macky International was who my mom was a flight attendant for back in the 70s.

Nice shots by the way.
