~ IN MEMORY ~
PAA/DL retired pilot Paul Quinton Cotton
Notification of the passing of retired pilot Paul Quinton Cotton, nearing age 77 at the time of his passing. I believe Paul hired on with Pan American 03-14-1966. The obituary notes that “Mr. Cotton was a pilot for 38 years with Delta/Pan Am Airlines”. I’m not sure of his retirement date with Delta however the April 2001 issue of DeltaDigest notes his 35th year anniversary and lists him as Second Officer based 030/ATL.
