As Pistons Flew
So Turns the World

Jane A. Gottschall

What was it like to fly internationally as crew on piston aircraft in the 1940's and 1950's; to see everything from volcanic eruptions in Central America to the fiery Frank Sinatra going to Spain; to shop in the ancient Damascus market or the famous Tokyo "Ginza"; to meet famous people from Marilyn Monroe to Bob Hope?

It was everything from landing in the Guatemala jungles, flying through hurricanes, witnessing rebellions, seeing wonders of art near the Seine and the Tiber, observing African tribal dances and enjoyments in the Pacific Islands.

Accommodations? Home was an apartment in New York's Greenwich Village to San Francisco's Russian Hill, but hotels after WW2 could be rooms without baths in London to a buri hut in Fiji.

Born, bred and schooled in New Orleans, Louisiana, from Lusher Grammar to Newcomb College, the author tried to join the WAVES during World War 2 and was told she was too young. She later became one of the first women to fly as a cabin attendant with the international airline, Pan American World Airways, in the days before jets.
