Episode Wings
Status Deceased (1960)

Allison "Ally" Thurston is the victim in "Wings". She left her small town to become a GWA stewardess and had dreams of seeing the world to fill a collection of figures of monuments.

Ally began to see the airline's unfair treatment of its stewardesses. They were expected to retire when they turned 32, they get fired for getting pregnant (like her friend Helen McCormick) or married, and are subjected to sexual harassment on a daily basis. She protested against these injustices and got Captain Rowland Hughes fired after harassing her.

He was having an affair with the stew's supervisor Gloria Flagstone. Gloria tried to get Ally to reinstate Rowland. When she refused, Gloria hit her over the head with a rotary phone. Her body was burned in the incinerator.

In 2008, Ally's remains were found. After her case was solved, her spirit is last seen by her old flame, Dean London.
