Fourth Molson Trophy win for Nordair.

Nordair stewardesses take all prizes in Montreal Interline Beauty Pageant.

Montreal - Scoring a clean sweep over all other airlines entered, Nordair stewardesses finished first, second, third and fourth in the 10th Annual Montreal Interline Beauty Pageant held in Schofield Hall, Town of Mount Royal, on Saturday, May 8, 1976.

The Winner, Christine Guida (below left), will go on to compete against representatives of most of the world's major airlines in the 'Miss Interline International' pageant to be held in Miami, Florida on May 22, 1976.

First runner-up was Danielle Perrault, who was also voted 'Miss Congeniality'. Francine Vincent was second runner-up and Myrian Smith third runner-up (below right).

In addition to the Molson Trophy, the fourth time it has been taken by Nordair, Ms. Guida won an expense paid TAP trip to Lisbon, Portugal, and a colour television set. Ms. Perrault won a trip to Portugal on TAP and each of the four top girls was presented with a personal Molson trophy.

Clarence Ash sends us two photos of Kamloops (YKA) and Kelowna (YLW) airports from his time as a relief passenger agent based at Kamloops airport in 1960.

The monument in front of the Kamloops Airport photo (below) is a plaque commemorating John Fulton, 1st commander of famous RCAF 419 Squadron in World War Two, for whom the airport was named.
