Love Was In The Air

Love was in the air. Literally. This photo of my grandparents was snapped right after my grandfather finished his final flight as a Braniff captain in 1979. He flew for Braniff for nearly 35 years. My grandmother and I rode with him on that final trip...Dallas to San Antonio and back. Dallas was his base, and San Antonio was his childhood home town. I rode in the “cockpit” with him, as it was called then. I remember wearing a dress and tights which was far less preferred than my usual soccer uniform, but that was back when people dressed up to fly and clapped when the landing was smooth. Both happened that day. My grandparents celebrated nearly 77 Valentine’s Days together as a married couple. #goals
