Happy reunion! Yvonne Shaw

seconded and assisted by generous Ian Mortemore,
member of noted Skal International
global travel association,

Nassau Gaming Board,
keeping an eye on the casinos in the Bahamas!

Yvonne is now associated with the Bahama Journal.
Thanks to your brilliant organizational and
hospitality skills this reunion came about, the

Dream Come True Reunion in Nassau July 2006!

Around 100 invitees enjoyed the lucious food
provided by Yvonne and Air Bahama crew colleagues
and tropical drinks served by a jovial bartender,
friend of the family! Many tearful meetings between
airline friends who hadnt met for decades took place
and we all knot new links of friendships and contacts,
talked about all the people of Air
Bahama and how great the flying days were.

front sitting group unidentified F/A in green jacket.
The faces are hard to make out due to the poor focus,
caused by a still poorer photographer, I was presented with
a state of the art digital camera by my family before leaving
for the Bahamas, so it takes an engineer to operate the darling
... slowly getting there ...
