Interesting article about the Sky Harbor "Taco Bell" wedding chapel and what happened to it and especially the bell.

I remember one time we saw a DC3 make four or five takeoff runs. It aborted each run, taxied all the way back to the foot of the runway for the next. Finally took off into the east on 8. I do not recall that it was a passenger DC3.
I just got back from an air show this afternoon at Sheppard AFB, TX, and there was a vintage DC-3 there. I asked the pilot if he knew. He's a retired Delta captain and he said it was probably a passenger manifest and route update, since that's what they still do today, but he really wasn't sure... sorry, not sure if that helps.

Where was the tetrahedron? I don't remember if there was one when I flew off the north runway (1977 to 1981 time frame).

The tetrahedron was somewhere south of the runway, I think. Of course, that takes a lot of area into account. I am sorry I can't more specifically recall. I believe that way back then, tetrahedrons could point to the runway in use, to the direction into which the wind blew, or to the direction from which the wind blew, depending on the field. I may very well be wrong.

In the matter of the simian at The Flame....Does anyone know the reason the being's employment was terminated? I believe I do.

Hi, new member here.

I vaguely remember going to the Willy and Guillermo's at Central and Missouri probably in about 1977 or 1978. I can't find any pictures of the place online. I remember it being kind-of stately and surrounded by trees. I think the parking lot was either gravel or partially-paved. I was quite young at the time and don't remember much about it aside from thinking it was pretty cool

Does anyone happen to have any photo or brochure scans to share?

Thanks!

I remember W & G's...I'd already moved to CA and came back for a visit. I got together with a friend and we went there in about '78 or '79 I think. I don't even remember where it was located...any help on that one?

I believe the location I had in mind was Central and Missouri, probably on the Southwest corner. There are condos there now.

I'm still stuck on the Totum Pole convenience stores. Those places with those totem poles out from were a hoot.
Then there was that - antlers bar? What was the name of that very small,dive bar that used to be at Hardy and Baseline in Tempe? The mowed it down to put a 76 gas station with car wash in it, that eventually went under. Then another place took it over which also went under. Then it was taken over by even different ownership/lease and it went under, as well. Now? It sits there, gas pumps, car was and huge convenience, store - completely empty. That bar that was there was known for all the fist fights and constant police presence, lol.
