Cleo Margaret Brown is the New Miss Aviation 2015 Winner!


I’ve only been to two pageants at the Rigodon Ballroom of the Manila Peninsula Hotel – tonight’s revival of the Miss Aviation title and the pageant I won over three decades ago – Miss YOUNG Philippines 1981. And tonight’s Miss Aviation winner,  Cleo Margaret Brown was the YOUNGest in her batch at age 17. I was one of the judges.

The last beauty to win the Aviation title was Lotis Key … Remember her?  She was in many hit movies in the 60s and 70s and was then the apple of Comedy King Dolphy’s eye… Lotis was also loved by movie fans of the time. So Cleo Margaret Brown has pretty big shoes to fill.

Her first job will be to represent the Aviation community at this week’s Hot Air Balloon Festival which starts on Feb 12, 2015 and runs until Feb 15, 2015 at Clark Airbase, Pampanga. And she is a worthy representative of that group being an Aviation Electronic Technology student at the Asian College of Aeronautics.

Cleo Margaret Brown is half Scottish and is fond of reading mystery books. She loves expressing herself through music and the arts.

Cleo’s 1st Runner-up is Lizl Louise Resoles, a flight cabin crew student from Wings Institute of Global Careers and 2nd Runner-up is Micah Angela Angeles, a lobby ambassador at leading hotel casino in Manila.
