Aloha ‘Oe Leina‘ala Drummond

Hawaii Aviation posted on X that Leina‘ala Ann Teruya Drummond, Miss Hawai‘i 1964, who was also the model for the new Hawaiian Airlines Pualani logo that was unveiled in 1973 as part of a major rebranding, passed away. Ms Drummond was also a flight attendant for the airline for a time. 

This first incarnation of the Pualani logo was used from 1973 to 2001 across Hawaiian's fleet of DC-9-15s, DC-9-30s, DC-9-50s, MD-80s, DC-8s, DC-10s, L-1011s, and DHC-7s. It was replaced with an updated version in 2001, then revised to the current incarnation in 2017.

Our thoughts, prayers, and condolences go out to Ms Drummond's ‘ohana.
