Inez wanders away from the windows of Gate 33, before taking a seat in the empty waiting area.

As the 707 taxis away, Gwen is narrating the safety briefing, while Stewardess Maria models the flotation vest. Maria points out the exits while some of the passengers pay attention.

Several passengers are featured during the briefing: the First Class passengers; a young man with glasses and his parents; Harry Standish’s niece Judy Barton, seated with an Italian woman and her son; two nuns seated with an Army Private; Ada Quonsett, seated between a Mr. Davidson and D.O. Guerrero (Guerrero clutches his briefcase); and Dr. Campagno, seated next to two  women.

Dr. Compagno shakes pills out of a bottle and hands some to his seat companion. “Don’t worry,” says Dr. Compagno, “if you take one of these, you won’t get airsick at all.”

“Thank you, Doctor!” says the woman seated next to him, as she takes a pill.
