On Saturday, November 20th, in our hanger at Luray Caverns Airport, Captain John was presented the “Presidents Lifetime Achievement Award” for his dedicated volunteer service to Angel Flight Mid-Atlantic. Over the past many years, John has completed 462 Angel Flight Missions, transporting, at no cost, those in need to medical appointments, adults and children alike.
It was a chilly afternoon, but many turned out to help celebrate this great event that was sponsored by Angel Flight Mid-Atlantic. Captain John was also very busy during the event signing copies of his book “Special Duties Pilot”.
A crew from NBC TV were on hand and their story will air this Saturday on the NBC Nightly News. (I will post a link after it airs for those that may not get a chance to view it)
