International Airline Captain
International airline captain for many years after the end of World War II. See www.transoceanairlines.com. His primary airline (due to frequent business-caused furloughs) was Oakland-based Transocean Airlines, which was features in three Saturday Evening Post articles calked, "The Daring Young Men of Transocean Airlines." It was a very unusual worldwide airline. Pilots would routinely be scheduled for passenger flights within the United States, throughout the Pacific, and to Europe and the Middle East. Flights varied from passengers to hauling 1,600 monkeys from India to the United states for the Salk polio program, flying plane loads of Muslim pilgrims from, throughout the Middle East to the holy cities of Mecca and Medina; being stuck in Iranian revolutions, and much more. Once the aircraft left the home base, the captains were on their own, handling decision-making, route planning, and emergency decisions without company help.

Federal Airline Safety Inspector
In 1961, as airline disasters were a common event, sometimes occurring every few months, he was hired by the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA). One of those airline disasters set a world record, and was a United Airlines DC-8 that crashed into the Brooklyn section of New York City. That horrific aviation disasters occurred on December 16, 1960. Corruption enabled that disaster to occur, and ironically, 40 years later, New York City experienced another world record experienced another and even more horrific world record aviation event: September 11, 2001. Those were also enabled by corruption.
