Photograph caption dated July 25, 1958 reads, "Just to see how they would look, Mrs. Jermeja Singh Hundal tries pinning flight crewman's wings on turban of Flight Engineer D. S. Pasricha as Capt. K. R. Gazder vetoes the whole notion--even during delivery flight of Air-India International's ninth Super Lockheed Constellation. Turbans for crew members, yes. Wings, yes. But together? Nope. It just isn't done by Air-India, Asia's largest commercial airline which today flew its 16th Lockheed airliner from Burbank to enter service."
