Flight Plans

Letter transcription:

[Postmark 27 November 1967]

Dear David:

My flight is American #216 and is booked to arrive in Boston at 10:55. Just hope Lake Central is on time so will be able to make connections in Chicago. Should leave here at 7:25 AM and arrive in Chicago at 7:05 – since they are on Central and we are on Eastern I will get there before I leave here. We have been told that Lake Central is not reliable as to schedule, so am hoping I will not have to call you from Chicago telling you I will be on a later flight. I have a friend here (Conference President) who is standing by in case I need a ride to Indianapolis or Chicago to get a plane.

Now that Thanksgiving is over have a few things to do before I leave for 10 days, so must get busy. Hope to see you Thursday at 10:55 or at about that time.

Love Mother

    “since they are on Central and we are on Eastern I will get there before I leave here.” 🙂

    “who is standing by in case I need a ride to Indianapolis or Chicago to get a plane” Gone are the days when you could just drive to an airport to catch a flight.
