Default William Ford - Flight Express 714

I knew Will while I was working at Safewing Aviation and he worked at Flight Express in CPS. He and I had about six months where our schedules overlapped and we both hung out together in St. Louis. On December 4th, 2002 I came in and they told me he had gone down.

He left behind a wife and baby in Los Angeles that he loved dearly, and he jumped home nearly every weekend to see them. Great guy, funny guy. Loved airplanes.

Check hauling was super dangerous. I felt that he and the other freight dogs lost never got much recognition. Smooth air on your final flight west, my friend. Wish I'd have had more time to get to know you better.
