Photograph caption dated November 3, 1962 reads, "More than 50 pilots, navigators and stewardesses, idled by a recent federal order grounding seven Valley airlines, file for unemployment compensation with the State Employment Office in Van Nuys. The crews have been out of work for more than a week since the Federal Aviation Agency revoked the airlines' operating certificates as a result of Civil Aeronautics Board rulings denying the supplemental air carriers interim operating authority. Pictured in the center of the group is Capt. Naron (Smoky) Lee of Granada Hills, a pilot with Admiral Airlines."
