Sintes sometimes recalled how she had found it difficult to be accepted. "Initially when I first started, one of the pilots said he would resign if a woman joined,"
I remember that. A real stuffed shirt.

16th? Jan 65.

What I'd always understood to be her first flight was not that night. Yvonne was there. I was there. The press was there, but I've got nothing on the 16th. Fairly typical of my logbook during Mortons. I don't recall sleeping the entire time I was there. I so wish I'd kept a journal.
