RacinGIRL911 : Isn’t it weird how women were looked at back then?

Chuck Keough : 2:46 beautiful eyes

Michael Collier : What's the problem, it's not as if they have to park it.

M Julian : I LOVE Fannie Flagg...she is the ULTIMATE forever

Randall Flagg : too funny - even women were uncomfortable with the idea!

Gordon McCoy : Flight Attendants were a Damn sight prettier in '63 than the group we have to look at today....!

dsmj : Oh God, another moment from history that is going to make Social Justice Warriors heads explode. Just what we need.

Partyall : The flight attendant was probably in shock thinking, wait a minute, I could have been a pilot??

Dalan Andrews : Monica Lewinsky at 2:00.

Kip Tucker : They didn't delude themselves with progressive nonsense in those days.  They instinctively knew the concept of Woman Pilot was wrong...just like Fire Woman or Police Woman.

James Herington : Hilarious

Marc Hoffman :

Pepe Guitarra : In 1982, I was working in a large engineering company and hired a woman engineer (the first one to work that company). As usual, the first day of work, I took her around the office to introduce her to the other coworkers. The first thing they said, even before I introduced her, was: " Hey, you hired a new secretary!!" Today, the president of that company is a woman.

Noel Coffey : and it was a lady that thought it so unusual if that was a man saying that be uproar lol

unclebobunclebob : I still haven't flown on a plane with a woman pilot. Now THAT'S amazing.

Caged : Back in the 60s this was probably shock as dismay. But I wonder what if, today after 9/11, they put a pilot who was woman wearing a nijab? Would we get similiar reactions? What if this was in Saudi Arabia?

FilmsFor SMARTpeople : That stewardess is so cute with that "60's Flip" hair

SuperHuia : how times have changed.

Chick Bait : I want my pilot to have had a passion for flight since birth, to have flown a long and distinguished stretch in the military under high stress missions, and then enter the commercial arena with 1000's of hours under his belt. If women fit that criteria, then I have no problem with them being commercial pilots. What I don't want is some gender quota crap that will inevitably kill thousands.

Randall Frame : Golly...things like this keep happening and soon women will be allowed to vote!!!!!

August : wow this was only in 63...crazy to think how far we've come.

A Who Snackbar : The men seemed skeptical but they seemed to accept it. But the women just couldn't accept being piloted by another woman! Go figure !!

Dr. Dawlin Ureña : Isn't it amazing how much more beautiful women looked back then?

MrEdwin57 : Look who brought down that plane safely in Philly when that engine blew! ! ! ! 4 /17/18.

Cool Yajets : When the World was as it should be

France D'Ahn : THAT’S GOLD

Caged : Happy Women's Equality Day!

joseph karl : All kinds of hate up in da house

Mitch Stone : This brings back a lot of memories of watching this with my parents so long ago!! Such a shame how they treated women back then and the women, well most of them, were brainwashed into thinking that's how things should be!! Women can do anything, as long as you take their cell phones, makeup away and don't ask them to park it correctly!

Hojung Kim : wow she look so classy

Gary J. : I think women pilots is a great idea: no need to reverse.

eight inches : None of these people had ever heard of Amelia Erhart?

wannawatchu66 : And when that first female pilot was hired, how much ya wanna bet it was some sort of EEOC requirement?

david2020 : Back then most women looked so classy with those hairstyles!!

Daniel Frost : I'm watching this and today we had Tammie Jo Shults save a Southwest airline after the engine blew up. Thank goodness attitudes have, mostly, changed.

Oshow : First!!

Jake Williams : There is a job for a man. There is a job for a woman. Woman shouldn’t be cops. Firefighters. Pilots.

bd C : Yes, that is the way it was. When I would choose a lawyer, CPA, doctor or a dentist in those days, I would select a woman because they had to be more "qualified" to go to graduate schools in those days.

Mark Riley : So this is where the world started going to hell

Vote for Ford : Terror in the skies!!

SuperPussyFinger : People were much wiser back then. They knew that women were dangerous and ill-equipped to handle complex tasks, long before women were unleashed to ruin the world.

poetcomic1 : Fannie Flagg - she was the most natural of all. Carried it off beautifully.

ds99 : Wow, it’s hard to believe that even women felt that they were stupid back then. I’m glad this all changed. I was watching this in disbelief.

Liz Morrison : that girl looks scared and seeing her weird just because she will flight in that plane with her , I don't like that but still we don't have pilots women :/ anyway good video

GyrlBlaque : That's so sad, thinking a woman can't fly a plane

Toobula : That's not just a woman, that's Fannie Flagg! Awesome woman!

Warren NZ : The funniest thing is that she wasn't *_really_* a pilot. That would just be silly back then. :-)

label1877 : Sad she was shot in '63...she was so pretty.

Katherine Kelly : Peoples perceptions are interesting to watch. So much is due to time, place and circumstances. My great grand mother was a pilot with the Air transport Auxiliary working for the RAF. The Americans had the Women Air Force Service Pilots. After WW2 the women were expected to help rebuild the shattered countries by having babies and not taking work from men. Societies are very malleable and the expectations change with the threats to them.

V. E. : Amelia Earhart would've rolled over in her grave, at that kind of gender bias. My mother and Father were both certified pilots, no wonder I got my first certification at age 17 (that was the youngest you could be to be eligible for a pilot's license). While I don't have the resources to keep up my flight time, I can and do still fly, Its just that I do it in hang gliders and parasails.
