Memories of Airplane encounters

Postby VioletSky3 on Sun Jun 22, 2008 9:51 pm

After I found this site, I began remembering some of my 'close encounters' with Airplane members and those associated with them.

My first memory...when I was 15, I was hanging out at Piece 'O Pizza in Hollywood. This blond chick came in, very pretty, very friendly. She sat at my table, I said 'hi' and we chatted. When I asked her what she did, her reply was, 'Oh, I handle publicity for Jefferson Starship.' Turns out this was the lovely Cynthia Bowman. She looked like a model, and she was very nice.

Soon after, I wrote to Ivan Wing...just on a whim. I very politely asked if he had any extra family photos of Grace, and 2 weeks later I received several with Grace (about 6 years old) dancing in what looked to be a ballet, one with Grace and her brother Chris (at Christmas; she was about 9), one from her wedding to Skip (China was flowergirl), and one that turned out to be the polaroid from the interior sleeve of 'Spitfire...Grace in a white dress, with a long wig.

After that, in 1990 I was at two Airplane reunion concerts. At the Greek Theater I went backstage and met the very friendly Jack Casady. What a nice guy! In fact, the only Airplane member who WASN'T at all nice was Marty. Perhaps he was having a bad night.

Those are the only memories that come to mind for now. But it's cool to share them somewhere they'll be appreciated.

Love to you all!

Hello VioletSky, I'm glad you found this forum. Thanks for sharing your Airplane Stories. I really enjoyed them. I would love to see those family photos of Grace. That would be really interesting.

As for myself, I have had nothing close to an Airplane encounter. Maybe some day, though.
