    Chuck flew out of O'Hare a lot when he was dating a FA who lived there. Most of his trips though originated from IAD

    I flew TS2A/US2B as an IP and P3C Operationally

    Did you know a CB "Chuck" Coltrin? Chuck was also a Marine fighter and attack pilot F-8 and A-4. Chuck retired from UAL in '02 or '03.

    You had an excellent career. United will survive, but they will never be that wonderful Airline that did everything. They flew all the routes and they did a great job of maintaining their own aircraft. There was nothing they could not do from a maintenance standpoint.

    My Dad had a golf buddy that flew for TWA, his name was Jim Miller. Jim told me that he thought turbine engines revolutionized aviation and I have to agree with him. He said in 30 years of flying 707's, 727's, and 747's, he only shut down one turbine engine and that was because of a faulty oil pressure gage. However, he said the last flight he did in a Super Connie he shut down two engines!

    It's hard to see the Airlines struggle, I've done business with United for years (I work for Honeywell, was AlliedSignal, was Garret, was AiResearch) and I've always had a lot of respect for United.
