My son, Steve, recently attended an open house at Flight Wing One. A professional photographer snapped this photo and the young man behind the pilot's left shoulder is Steve. Could the pilot be Dick Siano? I know that he was there in uniform.

Yep! It is me. The old uniform fit but it was a little more than snug. I was hoping to see more of you there. It was a great day and the terminal looked good. I suggested it be turned into a drinking establishment and have Sam from the New Yorker tend bar in his cutaway jacket. The original National Airlines terminal next door is on its way down...sad.

I think the uniform fits darn well. Good for you!

Sam from the New Yorker would have been perfect! I always wondered why he had 5 stripes. Now I know!
Dick, You look GREAT!

I lived at the New Yorker and from another side, lets not forget how damn hard we studied with those tomes they gave us. Never forget Gouch, after a lunch at Soakies, put you to sleep. For me, it was the last chance at the golden ring as I had already been with 6 airlines. I look back and see just how lucky all of us were. A major World Airline hiring us!!! I am still, and will always, be grateful for those and these days for all the blessings that TWA brought me and my family. I sure miss the airline and the people. My satisfaction now is being the Hospitality Chairman with TARPA and when we have our conventions, I get to see and enjoy my friends.

Hey, did Lenny arrive in the old TWA school bus?
