The Country Womens’ Association (CWA) and the Australian American Association were among groups that organised hospitality services for Americans on R & R, giving them the chance to visit Australian homes or join families on outings. Some Americans preferred to spend their leave outside Sydney and visited rural New South Wales, but for many their experience of R & R was largely limited to Kings Cross.

I was born in Long Beach, 1954,
lived there for 8 years, on Tevis Ave,
down by Los Coyotes and Wardlow I think,
Moved to Santa Ana in 62, lived there till I joined the Navy,,
lived all over OC after that, Garden Grove, Huntington Bch, Fullerton,
then moved to Riverside, Sunnymead, Now called Moreno Valley, Perris,
before moving to the central valley in 1990.
Back then, people would just help a guy out when something like this happened.
Nowadays, the plane would be impounded, the pilot would get a ticket, the mechanic would be sued, the neighbors would be complaining about having to detour a couple blocks, and the city council would use it as an excuse to annex the nearest small airfield.

QUOTE WIKIPEDIA: "Bandmate Waylon Jennings gave up his seat on the plane, causing Holly to jokingly tell Jennings, "I hope your ol' bus freezes up!" Jennings shot back facetiously, "Well, I hope your ol' plane crashes!" It was a statement that would haunt Jennings for decades."
Jimi: HELL, some ballsy guys were just jokin' around during a bad period of weather, folks. Let's just leave it lie at that. Sad day.
