The first DC 10 Air Bahama flight in December 1979
QUIZ! WHO RECOGNIZES WHO? List of persons on the picture
of first DC 10 flight. I don't remember the names of
everybody. Maybe you recognize some of them? I am the
second one standing when you start from the right.
The third one standing next to me is Dominique Dondainas,
another French FA. Next in line are Carnetha Carew,
Thelma Otto, Marina McLain, Ruthie Lightbourne,
Pandora Storr and Juan Garcia (sitting). Standing:
Margie Torres, on her left, N... Isaacs (I think).
I don't remember the names of the pilots and FEs,
but two of them were from Icelandair.
Air Bahama 1978-1980
I did the F/A training course in
Nassau in July 1978 and worked
for Air Bahama from 1978 until
1980, with one additional flight
in 1981. My class was composed of
Natalie Wood, Jaradette Dean,
Sandra Knowles, Debbie Symonette,
Donita Bethel and one or two
more (I forgot the names).
I have been working with Dominique
Dondainas, Arlette Fabry, Joan Armaly,
Marie Jeanne Clerc, Margie Torres,
Chantal Stéphany, Chantal Schlesser
and many others of course.
I was so sorry to hear Thelma Otto
After leaving IAB in 1981 I joined
the French Military Academy (officer
school) and I made my whole carreer
as an officer in the French army.
But my time with Air Bahama was
surely a very nice time.
I am married to Dominique and we
have one daughter Morgane (21 years
