Inflatable safety vests have never looked so good. Last week, Delta released its holiday short featuring a variety of Christmas characters as passengers.

It was the kind of mission that Warrant Officer George Carlton Bloodworth flew daily in Vietnam. But on Sept. 20, 1969, it went badly wrong. Bloodworth was piloting the second of two scout helicopters on a reconnaissance mission over the Mekong Delta in South Vietnam, speeding 100 feet off the ground, when the lead helicopter was shot down. As he circled back to search for its two-man crew, his own helicopter was shot down, and he was hit by ground fire. Still, he found the downed crew and helped lead the wounded pilot, the pilot's crew chief and his own crew chief through withering fire to safety.

Delta Air Lines and its pilots union reached a tentative agreement early yesterday, effectively ending the looming threat of a strike that could have shut down the ailing carrier for good. Neither Delta nor the Air Line Pilots Association, which represents nearly 6,000 Delta pilots, released details of the accord. The last-minute deal did not surprise many industry observers, who predicted an agreement would come in the final hours before an arbitration panel's deadline today to decide whether Delta could throw out its pilot contract so it could impose up to $325 million in annual pay and benefit cuts.
