    Thanks For The Memories...The Beatles In New York in 1964

    Thanks For The Memories...The Beatles In New York in 1964

    Here  just for Thanksgiving in America 2020, we step back a bit and widen our scope revisiting one of most famous "airport happenings" in New York City history. The date was February 7, 1964 and the great international airport for New York City John. F. Kennedy International Airport  (JFK) said hello  to the Beatles musical group and the city went wild. Actually the story of that flight has been well documented during the past 55 years in all aspects but one. What about the people that handled the flights and the ground support for that epoch trip? Here we include personal recollections of cabin crew and ground people alike in a romp that also relives the golden days of Pan American World Airways during a time when Pan Am was America's Airline To The World. Thanks to Michael Webber who created this piece , despite the lockdown and COVID-19, we all get a "Ticket To Ride".

    Stanley Lim: The Perennial/Lollypop & The White Tiger

    Stanley Lim: The Perennial/Lollypop & The White Tiger

    Stanley Lim Pioneering Singapore-based freight forwarder and Member of the Extended FIATA Board says:

     “A lot is happening in FIATA:  the reset idea is very good, but there are issues. FIATA has gone through a complete overhaul within a few months, in one of the most complex times of our lives due to the pandemic. I am fully committed to assist and my impression is that the new management would have an advantage to count on experienced members who recognize the demanding tasks of the association.”

    Knocking Around The Zoo

    By now our regular listeners have known Jim Larsen who served the pioneering all cargo U.S. carrier Seaboard World Airlines, and later as cargo marketing manger at The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey.

    Jim, as we have learned as we approach the 20th Anniversary of that terrible day, was a genuine hero of 911 as he rescued fellow workers from One World Trade Center.. That inspiring story will appear here on New Year's Day 2021.

    Here Jim shares a lighter hearted story of an adventure, knocking around the Calcutta Zoo in 1971.

    Easy To Remember Hard To Forget

    Easy To Remember Hard To Forget

    In less than two weeks the curtain will ring down on a career that has endured at an airline, nearly 46 years or since Gerald Ford was USA President and Helmut Schmidt served as Chancellor of The Federal Republic of Germany.

    In Frankfurt, when Heide Enfield packs it in and retires on November 30 and says her last farewell, she will also bring to close a family affiliation in the airline business that dates back almost as far as the creation and development of post 1950s modern commercial aviation in Germany.

    Bubbling Up After Everything Changed/An Autumn Serenade For 2020

    Bubbling Up After Everything Changed/An Autumn Serenade For 2020

    These days more often than not we hear some new language  driven by the COVID-19 global pandemic

    “We are OK, safe inside of our bubble.”

    I have often wondered how secure some of these perceived ‘bubbles” are.

    Also think of our Son’ Geoffrey 11 about 20 years ago the day he left Queens New York and headed out to Hollywood where he starred as Flipper Boy in his first big production movie titled Bubble Boy.

    Today I guess we all live in some kind of bubble and like the Bubble Boy in Guffy’s movie, we all have to learn how live breathe and think and move around for some time longer inside it.

    Webber Weaves A Tale S/H

    Mike Webber has contributed a diverse array of articles to Flying Typers over the years. From data-rich state-of-the-industry overviews to features about the Beatles’ arrivals at JFK and LAX that were shared in music (and Pan Am) forums where Flying Typers doesn’t typically land.



    An Autumn Serenade For 2020

    “Our look into the future must be guided by intelligence, experience, and common sense. 

    I have said this before:

    “The virus is neither political nor religious; it’s biological purpose is to spread, and we humans are the hosts.

    “We can reduce the risks."

    Jo Frigger 

    Chairman

    EMO Trans Global Logistics
