Belated notification....this is an ALPA reported death that we had not previously been made aware of. The ALPA column is the issue month in which the death was reported. Below is what information I could find for retired (NWA) pilot F/O George I. Stockstill. I was able to locate his obituary which indicates he flew for Continental and Express One. I’m not sure how that falls under the umbrella of NWA. If anyone can add to this, please let me know.
