In memory of fellow pilot Donald H. McClure
We dedicated our Angel Flight Mission of June 15th, 2017 to the memory of fellow pilot Donald H. McClure. Don lost his battle with cancer on May 30, 2017. John & Don flew many trips together with Eastern Airlines. He was a diligent and passionate worker on the Washington, DC safety committee with John for four and one half years and then continued working in that capacity for many years. That was followed by his continued work for air safety at the Air Line Pilots Association until his death. Don was a good friend, a pilot’s pilot and he will be greatly missed…
(In Honor of Don, we presented to his wife, Donna McClure, one of the 30 American Flags that we carried with us on our flight around the Country in 2015)

….. As told by Captain John …..
72 Years ago on a cold dark February night (February 25th 1945) three OSS Agents were flown across enemy lines and dropped in the Austrian Alps to began covert mission “Operation Greenup” this mission ended up being the most successful OSS Mission of WWII, saving thousands of lives on both sides. The dangerous flight to the drop zone was in a modified black B24 Liberator, flown by Captain John Billings and his crew…… (CLICK HERE) ….. for the story of that flight as told by Captain John himself
……. In Memory of Mary Makely …….
During December of last year we had the privilege of flying Mary and her husband John on two Angel flights. It was the first time we had ever met Mary but it did not take long to get the feeling like we had known her forever, and even though Mary had been dealing with serious cancer issues for some time you would have never known it by looking at her smile and sensing her overwhelming inner strength ! On February 4th, Mary departed on a different flight and now it is with heavy heart and great sadness that we say Fly High to Sweet Mary….. this time her journey was not with us on an Angel Flight, but instead with God .… as an Angel. And this time, different than before, her journey will take her to a place where her suffering will be no more. It was truly and Honor for us to spend some time with this amazing Lady, along with her wonderful smile you could just sense her strong will and love of life. Thanks for touching our lives Sweet Mary and God Speed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Mary’s husband John and her entire Family.
