CONTINENTAL AIRLINES PICKS
"QUEEN OF FLIGHT CANDIDATE
"

      
Lovely Esther Martinez has been selected as Continental Airlines candidate in the second annual
 Queen of Flight contest to be held May 20-24 in Las Vegas Nevada.

The contest will include representatives from airlines throught the free world and is part of the International Exposition of Flight, which will take place May 20 - 26 in the famed resort city.
Esther flies on Continental's Military Airlift Command charters between the west coast and the Orient and is based in Los Angeles.She has been a Continental Hostess for three years.
Born in Matamoros, Mexico, just across the border from Brownsville, Texas, she now lives in Manhattan Beach, Calif, near both the Los Angeles International Airport and the Pacific Ocean. Her interests are many and varied and include tennis, riding, volleyball, dancing, painting, sewing, cooking, and (by her own admission) Marriage.
Esther says she finds her work fascinating and very challenging: "Probably the most rewarding part of this job is the communication we Hostesses have is with the servicemen we fly to and from Southeast Asia.  They are splendid young men and we get a tremendous feeling of pride just being part of it all. "
Esther is 27 years old, weighs 122 pounds, and measures 37-24-37.
