The class of '68.

Over the past few years, Howard, John and Bill have logged thousands of hours with TWA-along our routes throughout the U.S., Europe, Africa, Asia. But they're still the Class of '68. Because just a few weeks ago, they graduated from a refresher course at the TWA Flight Training Center in Kansas City-a base so advanced, other airlines use it to train their crews.

Howard, John and Bill-like all TWA crews-represent the best in airline flight personnel anywhere in the world today. But even that won't stop them having to graduate all over again, at their next regular refresher course. They'll come back and be the Class of '69.

What about Saundra Jett? She was chosen out of thousands of applicants. In fact, only one out of every 36 makes it with TWA because we set such high standards for our girls.

People like this put TWA in a class by itself.
