Bernice "Celebration of Her Life" - Photo 5
Pilots Paul and Bernice Noll
In 1982 Bernice and I flew our airplane around the world for four months. We
flew in an 8 passenger Cessna 421 pressurized twin. Because we do not have
tickets, boarding passes or check our luggage, we need to dress as an aircrew.
We had these uniforms made in California before we left. This was at the
suggestion of the AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association). We flew to
some 40 countries in Europe, Middle East, Africa and other. We flew as aircrew
of Owl International Airlines. Owl International Airlines has only one aircraft
and the company consists of Bernice and Paul. We had badges showing us as
members of Owl Airlines. We are a "Fly by Night Airline." Bernice had to learn
to set the
plane down in case of an emergency. She was always ready for a flight. We
owned our own plane and hangar for many years and put in over 2000 hours flying.
