2023 San Diego Photos

Our 49th Anniversary Reunion was held in San Diego at the Wyndham Bayside Hotel from May 26th to May 29th.  As done every five years, we used this reunion to recognize our stewardess and flight attendants for their contribution to the success and legacy of the Flying Tiger Line.  The event was attended by over 300 members and their guests, the weather was perfect and everyone agreed that this was one of the better events that we have had.

Side events included a Saturday golf tournament organized by Robert Carona. The Business Meeting was held Sunday morning followed by a Flight Attendant Luncheon,  a Life Member (Tiger Lily) happy hour, and an Open Mic session in our Hospitality Room attended by 105-year old Capt. Orval Prevost.   Memorial Day Monday was spent aboard the USS Midway where ten volunteer docents gave private tours to our group.  The reunion ended Monday night with our Beach Boys themed buffet and dance to the sounds of Woody & the Longboards.   Click HERE to see the list of who attended.
