Court bought Winnipesaukee Airlines out of Laconia, NH flying Navaho aircraft to Boston and to the islands on Lake Winnipesaukee in his Republic See Bee.  He loved the Volmer Amphibian he built Lil Yellowbird.  He commuted to his home in Melvin Village in both his amphibious aircraft.

After retirement in 1989 from Delta flying international on the L-1011, Court joined the airshow flying vintage aircraft all over the United States and Canada,  with the Memphis Bells (movie B-17) B-24, B-25 and also the C-47.

Court was a proud member of the Delta Pioneers, Quiet Birdmen,  Yellowbird and the Experimental  Aircraft Association.

Word from family was just recently received... this news with the passing of Delta Golden Wings member retired Northeast/Delta pilot Captain Courtney John Lundquist, age 89.  Born/raised in Massachusetts to parents John C. & Ebba Lundquist and a military veteran, Captain Lundquist was just shy of his 90th birthday at the time of his passing.  Although the pilot roster indicates a seniority date of 6/11/1953, Captain Lundquist actually first joined Northeast Airlines 10-15-1951.  He retired with Delta Air Lines January 1989 and was based ATL at the time of his retirement.  Captain Lundquist is survived by his wife of 41 years ‘Bj’ Stacey Lundquist plus many other dear friends and family members.  Arrangements are not known but for those wishing to send a personal note, condolences may be sent to the family at
