    Gary Byrd. Looking for info on whatever happened to Gary Byrd. He was the first Afro American pilot with Pacific and was a captain with Hughes. He and I were roommates in Seattle. I heard he was murdered in East Palo Alto. Anyone have a clue?

    Warren Edwards. Warren was a pilot out of Seattle with RW. We made the “UpFront” presentation together which is in the Aircraft Page of this site. I would like to chat with him and tell him about the presentation being online. I know he was laid off the same time I was in December of ’69. I don’t know if he returned to AirWest/Hughes Airwest after the furlough.

    Jack Furrer told me that Gary Byrd was murdered in Oakland. Sorry.

    Thanks Jack. Wondered what happened to him. Do you recall the approximate year? I’ll do a ‘search and destroy’ in the oakland papers. I’m guessing it would have been around 1972

    Wondering what ever happened to WELDON JONES. He was Senior Agent/BFL when I was there 1966-1968. Last I heard, he went to RNO when BFL closed not long after I left in 1968 back to SFO.

    Rob (Smith).

    I contacted Tom Bailey of Hughes AirWest and he sent me this message:
    “Last I heard, he was still living just outside of Carson City. Lee Littlejohn had a phone number for him but says it is no good anymore, he may have passed away. Lee has Rob’s email and is going to send him a note.”

    Good Luck,
    Dan
