In this age of bare bones airline service, Lady Skywriter serves up an entertaining program recalling the vastly different passenger experience of 50 years ago. She reacquaints us with a time when T-shirts, shorts and flip-flops were unthinkable airplane attire, and suits, hats and dresses were de rigueur.

Come along for a ride back to the 1950s on a Northwest Airlines Boeing B-377 Stratocruiser. Lady Skywriter will share stories and vintage photographs from her own collection, of her days working on the double-deck airplane with the lounge “downstairs.” We will take off from your location and wing our way back to the golden era of passenger flight ~ a time when Elvis was “king,” Ike was president and Hollywood actress Grace Kelly married Prince Rainier and became Princess of Monaco.
