JUNE 24, 2006
I have so much fun reading
everything you send out in the
emails! How about a few new
pictures of Shawn and family for
Dad's site! They have moved to
Jacksonville Florida to a naval
station. They are beautiful
children, even if I say so.
I looked at Ev Terry's webpage
and was so glad. It has been 30
years since I saw Kathy, Tom, Bim
and Tracy.
Greetings to all!
Love from Dee (Cathleen)

Bill McDonald IN MEMORIAM
A good friend and colleague

Bill served as flight engineer
for International Air Bahama.

This is Bill McDonald´s own story
of how the International Air Bahama
Flight Engineer section was formed

On June 15th, 1968  Ev Terry came to 
Oklahoma City and contacted Bill McDonald 
and other engineers to hire us for EJA to 
start an airline. He hired Lynn Davis, 
John Nessal, Richard Brown and Bill 
McDonald, he had already hired Andy Boer. 

We started company school. While we were 
there Ev asked me if I knew another 
engineer. I called my friend Charles 
Bryant and he was interested. He joined 
us at TWA where we went to B-707 school. 
We finished the school in June 1968 and 
went home until we met in Ohio. We then 
flew to Miami Florida to do training. 

On the 18th July we made the proving run 
from Nassau to Luxembourg and back. 
As you know the first flight departed 
21th July 1968 at 6.00 pm.

The second flight lift took off the next 
day on time. 

Ev Terry, Don Torres, Walt Fink and Bill 
McDonald, was the cockpit crew. 
My grand son was born at take off time.
