Fly anything to anybody from anywhere. The 1945 plan.

Newspaper clippings and pilot records record first Veterans Air cargo revenue flight 3 December 1945. Iced, dressed turkeys from Louisville to Teterboro NJ.
One of the earliest press stories after Veterans Air was formed, but before its first reveue cargo flight. Photo of Saunie Gravely, Founder, and Robert Montanarello, first-hire Veterans Air pilot.

Their ideas, their youth, their self assurance … press coverage ingredients, for certain. This coverage is from The Sunday Courier-Journal, Louisville, KY, November 25, 1945, Pg 10. Special thanks to my newly discovered Gravely cousin, Donna Sue, who not only found this news clip for me, but “found” me through this website! Exciting to say the least!
