John Younger: "Rachael in Panama" On Sun, Jun 26, 2016 at 12:46 PM, Louise Ledbetter
The best hotel when I was there was the El Panama Hotel, and the food was great! The name of the airport is Toucoum, and many years ago a DC6 left Cali only to find Toucoum with such heavy rain that they could not land. They circled until the fuel was very low, and they had to land at one of the Army fields in the jungle. To save fuel the Captain had to cut the fuel flow down so as to keep the aircraft aloft. When they tried to ferry the DC6 over to Toucoum, they found that they had to replace all the spark plugs, as the reduction of fuel had burned the elements on the plugs, and they were unusable. When I was in Cali I always checked the weather, as Panama at certain times of the year they have very heavy rain, so during these months I added more fuel. I am certain that Rachael will enjoy Panama, and will get an eye opener in Cuba, however, not to say that she will enjoy the old Spanish buildings that are century's old, and the capitol. There are two airports in Havana, and I use to know the names, however, one is the military field/the other the passenger field. I spent a week at the military field in '46, and I was not part of an engine change I had the run of the City. The people were very kind, and I ate their bean soup, and other vegetables, but I stayed clear of meat. I slept on the C47 at night, however, it was not very pleasant, as the sun heated up the metal shell of the aircraft during the day, and it did not cool off until morning. Cuban Spanish is a language I could never understand, as they speak so rapidly, however, Mexican Castilian Spanish is very understandable, in fact some of my favorite songs are sung by Mexican folks. I had hoped Rachael would take Spanish, however, she is pretty bright, so maybe she can get those Cuban folks to slow down in their speech!
Love, "Pop"
