    I was going to school in Vallejo and would fly home to Long Beach. Western Airlines has a red eye for $10. Interesting side note. I flew on DC 8's. Just a few months earlier I had been working for Douglas building those same planes. My first job out of high school was crawling inside of the wings of DC 8's to seal the fuel tanks.
