Captain Gordon Beachy

Captain Gordon was flying for TWA when this picture was taken of him seated in a MD-80. After American Airlines purchased and liquidated TWA he was laid off, and went on to ATA where he flew 757's for a year. ATA subsequently came down with "Airline Industry Disease," so Gordon accepted America's offer to fly for their regional affiliate, American Eagle, where he is Captain on their Embraer 145 (50 seat RJ). Gordon is a graduate of the only Mennonite aviation college, Hesston College, in Hesston Kansas. >Thanks Gordon, may your skies always be clear,<
