So visibly obstructing him?

Let us know if this happens again, for sure.

No she was standing right next to the tug, making eye contact with him, and when he honked to start moving she waved and motioned no. solid 3 mins holding before WJ pushed. then she walked away. I have pics but they won't upload to here.

Well WJ could have had a slot time to meet, Flair may not have had a clearance yet.


Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.

I am going to guess 1975, just because of the quality of the photo.

I am going with NParker. Mostly due to the style of the roadway.

1965 to 1970. Trying my best to squint at the cars in the parking lot and the aircraft at the terminal.

There is a 1953 Chevy just right of center, and the plane at left is a DC-4 with Pacific Western.

So it could very well be the 50s. You have a better eye (or monitor) than I!

Not really, I made some of it up but Pacific Western was active at the time and they did fly DC-4's   :thumbsup:

I saw the old props and can’t imagine they were flown very far into the 60’s, so how close is 1955?

Pacific Western flew DCs until at least 1969. When was the big hanger at the Coast Guard base built. That stands out quite nicely in the top left of the photo.
