Throwback Thursday // Frankie Avalon Flies Delta
By: Marie Force, Delta Archivist, Atlanta
With that perfectly coiffed hair, Frankie Avalon was no Beauty School Dropout! This Delta flight attendant crew is all smiles posing with the actor/singer in ’62.
Shown arriving in Atlanta in November 1962, with Stewardesses Sherry Gill, Glenda Little and Joyce Potter. Frankie was busy promoting a new Christmas album and enjoying the success of his last Top 40 Pop hit “You Are Mine,” released in April.
His career was about to take a major turn after four years as a teen pop sensation. In 1963, he teamed up with Annette Funicello as her surfing boyfriend in the first of the hit teen Beach Party movies.
