Comments Obit     re:  Captain James Hibbs (listed in todays PCN)
Carol:  "If" this is the same Jim Hibbs, he was in my 7.8.68 hire class with Bonanza Airlines in Phoenix, Ariz.
He started his airline career with Bonanza at the merger of three airlines. Continuing through Air West, Hughes Air West, Republic and finally Northwest.

Looking for information re James W. Hibbs .....
Belated notification....this is an ALPA reported death that we had not previously been made aware of.  The ALPA issue month shows when the death was reported. 
Below is what information I could find for (NWA) Captain James W. Hibbs. 
I could not find an online obituary or airline affiliation but believe this to be James William Hibbs Jr. of Nevada, Missouri.  
Perhaps Captain Hibbs flew for Southern or Republic before they merged with Northwest.
If anyone has more information, I would appreciate your input and thank you very much.
