You know what I loved most about working at the APO? It was being around the aircrafts. All that metal curved into aerodynamic forms. Like the TWA terminal, it's shaped to symbolize flight. Where else could you see so many planes from so many countries? Carrying thousands of people around the globe. We flew DC-10's DC-08's and DC09's. Out on the tarmac at 400pm scores of aircraft in line for take-off. Fuel exhaust waving in the heat. I always loved boarding time. When everyone journeys closer to their destination. Full Flight! 152 passengers and 8 crew 160 SOULS ON BOARD.
