This informative post will be posted on Saturday along with my usual writing. We can all appreciate some of the lesser known facts from around the world.
The first flight attendants were men whose main job function was to handle baggage. When United Airlines decided to put women on their planes in 1930, all of the stewardesses they hired were nurses, based on the theory that nurses would be most capable of handling passengers’ needs on bumpy flights.
Fred Astaire’s famous dances with Ginger Rogers were some of the most romantic moments in movie history, but Astaire actually developed the numbers with choreographer Hermes Pan, who filled in for Rogers during choreography, then later taught her the steps.
These facts have been discovered in I NEVER KNEW THAT by David Hoffman (2009).
