My father was a pilot
for Braniff for goodness 25 years or more... And later Mother was a
flight attendant. I am trying to find a replace something very dear
to me. I am hoping someone can help.
Daddy brought home for me when I was a girl the Braniff "Barbie"
Doll... She wasn't made by Barbie but was that type in a Black Box with
white lettering. Inside were all her outfits including the Bubble helmet.
I only ever had mine out of the box a dozen times at most. It had all
the pieces and was extremely dear and precious to me. Last year my husband
left me for another woman, and in his bitterness distroyed many cherished
items from our 14 years together and my childhood. He knew this would
cut to the quick as Daddy had given it to me, and Daddy passed away
12 years ago. Of all my childhood treasures this is the one that tore
at my heart. I am now a single parent and a flight attendant for Alaska
Airlines... Daddy was not here to see me reach this childhood dream
to "fly like Daddy". I would very much like to replace this
treasure that was taken from me. However, I have very limited funds.
If you have one in the box with all the pieces in excellent to mint
condition and would be willing to part with it. Please send me an email
how much. I've only be flying... well not quite five years and with
to girls, there's not a lot of extra to go around, but I'd still like
to see if I can find her and what it would run to have her again...
Thank you... Stay safe up there... Akskygirl@msn.com

I worked for Braniff
from 1959 to 1982, then for about 8 months in 1983 before being furloughed.
I enjoyed every minute of it, well, almost every minute.
