Jim was hired NWA on August 05, 1968. His career was mostly spent in the right seat of NWA aircraft. Jim found his niche as a first officer on the Boeing 747. He was very active with competitive acrobatic aircraft competition. He judged competitions and manned the IAC booth at Oshkosh for several years. More information to follow.
