Colorado Springs, Co.

Hosted by William J. Beck



Our speaker at the Colorado Springs reunion was Bob Brush from Nevada, a former test pilot for Douglas, flying the A-20 and some of the early Douglas aircraft.  He would not let us pay his airfare, but we were able to provide a room and meals. This is picture is of Betty and me taking him to the Colorado Springs airport.  I saw him on the aircraft, I believe it was Continental, and he was in coach.  So, I stepped in the cockpit to tell the crew what a distinguished guest they had on board and I was sure he would appreciate a ride in First Class.  Turned out the copilot was 90th squadron in Korea.  He said it would be the Captain's decision. I received a call from Bob several days later and he said he rode First Class to Reno.
