1946 Veterans Air Express crew

(POST UPDATE 9/19/2016: Constantine J. Keloss (Kaless) just identified in 1946 Veterans Air photo.) On 10 November 2015, I launched my second-ever “road trip” to meet crew members. The result? Face-to-face meetings and first-hand details from 1946 Veterans Air Express crew: flight engineer Thomas Cowart and navigator Ed Martz. Plus I received grand old photos taken by VAE pilot Richard Broughton. Come see.

FLY FLORIDA & CAPE COD VIA VETERANS

DC-3 “Snowbird” flights from Newark to Miami via “The Veterans’ Air Line.” (New York Times classified 18th and 21st January, 1946). And summer vacationers in Cape Cod are lured to relax and fly to the Cape via the “modern” Veterans airliner. (Newark NJ paper display ad, date unknown.)
