A professional writer with advertising agencies for over forty-two years, Kit Wilson created marketing materials, from print to broadcast, for some of the most well known companies in America. Taking each client's message to the public, via savvy campaign-driven programs, afforded opportunities to create for a wide variety of services and products - fueling responsive sales to innovative ideas.
As a “military” brat (son of a US Naval Officer), he attended schools across the width
and breath of America - graduating from high school in Japan in 1963.
Author of two previous titles, one novel (“Loyal Unto Death”-2000) and the other a tv/film costume design reference guide for WW2 uniforms, Wilson has shared his extensive knowledge of contemporary 20th Century conflict and social upheavals throughout Europe and America.
While attending college - majoring in Advertising - at North Texas State University during the mid ‘60s, Braniff International Airlines introduced “The End of the Plain Plane” ad campaign in 1965. Responsible for turning the commercial airlines industry upside down, Wilson now wants to chronicle stories from real air hostesses of Braniff - not make believe “Pan Am” cardboard characters.
Interviewing dozens of ex-hostesses from the most innovative air carrier in history, he tells their personal stories - from tropical resorts to midtown Manhattan, sharing their experiences from life at 29,000 feet and everywhere in-between! Wilson’s captured both the panache and elan of the Braniff Hostess corps with countless candid photographs, including graduating classes, in-flight pranks, and destination travel tableauxs remembered with clarity and emotion.
