Thanks Clamp.... Really kind of drove it home over Thanksgiving. Vic's wife (a former long time Delta Flight Attendant Manager) was asking about our retirement. I said, "it's handled by a quasi govermental agency called the PBGC, but you've guys have probably never heard of them." She said they were quite familiar because of the bankputcy at Eastern Air Lines, they handled Vic's retirement..... It's a tough business.

Vic told me how he met his wife in 1972. She was a "Stew" at the time. Vic said he and his buddy (another Eastern Pilot) were out washing their brand new Trans Ams at their apartment complex close to the Doral Country Club and a hot looking girl pulled up in her new Dodge muscle car. Vic said he walked up to the car and said, "Honey, that's an awfully nice looking car, but dirty, so why don't you go up to your place and fix the three of us a drink and we'll clean up your car". The rest is history.....

Fair Winds Vic!
