    • The Lift
      By Sonny · Posted
      As a concierge at a posh resort, I was often asked about the ski facilities. One day a couple who had just checked in after a long flight came by and asked me where the lift was.

      "Go down the hill," I told them, "out the door, past the pool, 200 yards down the block, and you'll see it on your right."

      Their tired faces suddenly looked even more exhausted, until the man behind them spoke up.

      "They're from England," he said. "I think they're looking for the elevator."

      If I remember right, that airplane was in my squadron (35 th TAS) at Naha when I was there from 67-69. I worked on 56-0475. Neat story, Ken

      c, not everybody went from Taipei to CCK via bus! When I arrived from Naha for my new duty at CCK, I was all alone and had to fend for myself. I took the train. I had no idea what anybody was saying so I started asking all of the passengers " he say Taichung?" Finally a nice guy said "Taichung Taichung!" I got off and was able to find a way to CCK from there! This all took place in Mar. 69   We might have known each other, Ken

    Crash: At least 116 people are feared dead after an Indonesian air force transport plane crashed into a major city shortly after take-off and exploded in a fireball. Buildings were left in ruins and cars reduced to flaming wrecks when the Hercules C-130 came down on Tuesday in a residential area of Medan, a city of two million on the island of Sumatra. Air force chief Agus Supriatna said the manifest showed there were 113 people on board the plane - 12 crew and 101 passengers - when it crashed, and he did not believe any had survived "No, no. No survivors, I have just returned from the site," he told AFP in answer to a question. So far, 49 bodies had been recovered and taken to hospital, he said. Many passengers were likely to be family members of servicemen and women, said a spokesman for Medan air base, where the plane took off. At least one child has so far been confirmed killed. The local search and rescue agency also said that three people were killed on the ground when the 51-year-old plane went down near a newly built residential area, hitting a massage parlor and a small hotel. A rescue operation swung into action, with ambulances ferrying bodies from the site, and crowds of anxious residents gathering around a police cordon to view the smouldering wreckage. Residents of Medan described the terrifying moment just after midday when the plane came down. "It was very scary," said Novi, an employee of an international school who goes by one name, describing how she heard the plane and saw it flying very low before the crash. Another local resident Januar, 26, said the aircraft appeared to be in trouble just before the accident. "I saw the plane from the direction of the airport and it was tilting already, then I saw smoke billowing."
