Veterans Air Express Chief Pilot Robert Chambers… his photo and role.
Look at this.
THE BEFORE: Our Chief Pilot Robert Chambers already hired on by Veterans Air Express – before our first DC-3 was even in livery.
I am excited to share this photo with you. Robert’s son Bruce sent it to me today after our second phone conversation in four days.
THE AFTER: The same DC-3, “de-militarized” and sporting Veterans‘ livery – with my name GAYE LYN. That’s Robert Montanarella waving from the left seat. He was Veterans’ first crew hire.
The two Roberts together. Hooah!
We’re closing in on this group. Who do you know???
Bruce Chambers confirmed I correctly identified his Dad, Robert, in this group photo. An article in the Newark Evening News made me suspect it was Chambers standing at the open cargo door with another crewman named Robert — Robert Montanarella — because the two piloted the DC-3 together.
