Your Memories Shared!

"I worked for Southern Airways in ATL from 1973 to 1976 as a secretary in Sales & Services, and then became a reservations agent. We were afforded so many travel opportunities, and I have some wonderful memories of the places I travelled to. I still remember so many other fellow employees and wonder where they are today. Every now then a conversation will come up, and I still comment on having worked for Southern Airways back in the Super70s...I'm very proud of that."


"I recall flying on Southern Airways when I was a child. My uncle was a pilot for the airline and I was thrilled when I got on the aircraft. The aircraft I was on as a passenger was a DC-9 with a smile painted on the nose cone. It was, a great airline, due to the people who made it possible. I am looking for a photograph of a DC-9 with the smile on the nosecone to give to my uncle. If anyone could help, it would be greatly appreciated.
[Editor's note: Here's where you want to search:
In fact, if you search with "smile" as your keyword, dozens of aircraft with smiles painted on will appear.]
