This jogs my memory. I sat across from him on a flight from Boston to Pittsburgh, stopping at Hartford, CT, in the early 70's. I had been upgraded to first class for some reason.
He was wearing a white suit, in the dead of winter; couldn't miss him. Was traveling with a young assistant , if I recall, and was getting off at Hartford.
If I recall, he had sold KFC to Heublein Indust., and was going to their HQ in Hartford.
I'm relying on my memory of almost 40 years ago, so if I am incorrect on any details, please advise.
