American and Canadian Friends
- USMC, the United States
Marine Corps. There are many lady soldiers in the United States
(2003). The U.S.marines are the toughest soldiers in the world,
but they are also known to be warm-hearted individuals.
- Navy.The U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis is an elite college producing top-class scientists. Jimmy Carter (the president of the United States 1977-1981) studied here, and was a nuclear engineer. Albert Abraham Minchelson was the first American Nobel Laureate in physics. He was an Annpolis graduate. Click here for my webpage dedicated to Michelson.
- Brilliant Naval Officers. I was told that the Naval Academy's main business is to produce able naval officers. I met one brilliant Annapolis graduate in Gdansk (Poland 2010). This photo was taken at Gdansk's most prestigious sea food restaurant. They are NATO admirals from Britain, Italy, Poland, France, and the United States. The lady on my right is an Annapolis graduate, and she (from the U.S. Navy) is naturally the boss of this NATO group. She became very happy when I mentioned Michelson.
- Navy officer from the U.S. 7th Fleet during the Christmass-eve mass at the St. Peter's Cathedral, Vatican (2015). She is an electrical engineer. She became impressed when I asked whether she came from Yokoska, Japan. I seem to know many things in this world.
- The campus of the U.S. Naval Academy.

restaurant near the Opera House (July 2002). She is indeed a brilliant
lady, and I am convinced that she will make important original contribution
in her field.
- Students from Rutgers. These three young ladies from Rutgers University were spending a weekend in Princeton's Hyatt Regency Hotel (February 2002). They said they like this hotel because it has a nice swimming pool, when I met them in an elevator one hour earlier. They became very close to me when I told them I am a professor, and they would wait for this photo on my webpage. You would agree that America is a beautiful country.

- Northwest. These NW ladies
were still cheerful after a tiresome trans-Atlantic flight from Amsterdam
to Washington's Dulles Airport. This photo was taken on a moving lounge
at the Dulles Airport (May 2003).
I took a NW flight when I was coming to the United States from Korea in 1954 right after my high school. Those NW ladies took care of me well. One of them scolded me for my unruly boyish behavior. Indeed, the Northwest has a special meaning to me. I feel quite secure with those NW ladies. At that time, the airline was called the Northwest-Orient Airlines, and was the dominant trans-Pacific carrier.
- NorthWest Business Class. I was
in the NW World Business Class cabin on a flight from Amsterdam to
Detroit in July of 2008. The cabin was hosted by a first-class purser,
consistent with my age and position.
- From Detroit to Shanghai (July 2011).
I was fortunate enough to be in the business-class cabin of another
Northwest flight, and I met this senior purser who spent most of her
professional years with NW. Because the Northwest was absorbed into
the Delta Airlines recently, she was wearing a delta uniform.
- Another delightful lady on the same flight. It appeared that the pilots and aircraft were also from the Northwest. When I told her why I like NW, she appreciated. She gave me two different business cards. One with the present employer (Delta Airlines), and the other which with the NW trade mark. She told me to keep her NW card as a souvenir, not for business.
- Two Ladies together. I look happier with two ladies, because God pulled out two ribs from me (from both left and right). I seem to have the same number of ribs on both sides according to my chest x-ray photos.

told me about the changes that took place in her profession. There
used to be many barriers. They got rid of color and gender barriers
many years ago. There used to be also age, height, and weight barriers.
They are all gone. She still has to send her children to collages.
Her job is not easy, but there are challenges. She likes to use her
travel experience to open up a more creative business.
- She has been going to Seoul since 1991, is familiar with the city. She was very happy to meet a Korean man because most of the people on the plane were Americans and Chinese. She knows how to order items in Korean restaurants. She told me Seoul has gone through changes after changes. When I told her I left Seoul in 1954 and has never been back, she said I am a stupid person.
- NW used to be the Northwest-Orient Airlines. This lady joined the Northwest when it was the Northwest-Orient Airlines many years ago. This made me very happy because I came to Pittsburgh from Seoul on Northwest-Orient flights (Seoul-Tokyo-Anchorage-Seattle-Milwaukee-Pittsburgh) in 1954. She said it became the Northwest (without Orient) when it was merged with the Republic Airlines in 1986.
- Here is a lady from the Republic Airlines. She was very happy to meet an old timer (during a flight from Beijing to Detroit, 2011).

be on Pan Am flights very often. This
lady used to work for Pan Am, and I met her on one of the PanAm flights.
Since then, PanAm became absorbed to Delta Airlines. She is now working
for Delta. It was indeed a pleasure to meet her on a Delta flight from
Nice to Atlanta on June 17, 2006.
- In 1990, I was on a PanAm flight 30 to Moscow. At that time, going to Moscow was a very privileged and exciting experience. This PanAm flight 30 is now called Delta 30.
- The Pan Am terminal at New York's Kennedy Intl Airport used to look like this. This is now one of the Delta terminals.
- The PanAm Building, and the Chrysler Building seen from the observation floor of the Empire State Building. The building is still there, and its name is "Met Life Building."

same Athens flight from New York (2010).
After taking this photo, we became close enough to produce

- Willing to help. This lady was very helpful
when I had difficulties in using a push-screen computer at New York's JFK Airport.
Since she was so positive in helping others, I asked her whether she was working
for an airline. She said she was working for Delta. I asked her whether she is
an Italian. She said she was born in the United States, but her parents came from
Italy. A very cheerful lady, and she is an asset to the Delta Airlines.
- Paris to Cincinnati (January 2012).
- Another Paris-Cincinnati Flight (April 2012).

- Another set of Ladies in the same flight.
- Sheraton Rio: An off-duty
United Airlines purser in front of the Hotel Sheraton Rio (Rio de
Janeiro, Brazil, 2000). I was holding a Rio licence plate carrying
Feynman's name. This bogus plate was made by the Brazilian
gentleman in the photo. Later, we were on the same flight coming
back to the States. I was assigned to a business-class seat even
though I had an economy-class ticket, while she was working for
the economy-class passengers. I must have appeared to her like a
rich Japanese businessman, but she was very smart. She knew I was
a professor of Korean origin and spoke some Korean words to me.
A very pleasant experience. Be careful. Those airline ladies
know about you.
- More about Sheraton Rio. I met many interesting people there.

- AAL Ladies at Rome's Fiumicino Airport (2012). The plain-clothed lady on my left used to work for the American Airlines. She is now retired and is very happy to be in this photo with younger colleagues.
- Lady Pilot. I met this senior
citizen at the Westinghouse fountain in Pittsburgh (U.S.A., 2003).
She was a pilot when she was very young, and spent her later years as
a professor of aviation at Ohio University. Women pilots are still
rare. Indeed, she was one of the pioneers in her profession. She
has an excellent understanding of three-dimensional geometry. In
this photo, I am thinking about my past. The Westinghouse fountain
is very meaningful to me because I used to go there for rest and
relaxation when I was an undergraduate student at Carnegie-Mellon
University (1954-58). Like to hear more about this fountain?
- Comair Captain relaxing while waiting for a flight as a passenger at the Cincinnati Airport (May 2004). The ComAir provides local connections to Delta. She said she was going home after the work.
- United Express Captain at Boston's Logan Airport (July 2011). A very cheerful lady. We need more people like her in airlines industry.
- Delta Captain, at the Baltimore-Washington Airport after a flight from New York (2013). She took the posture to show her four stripes (highest rank).
