“Hall of Fame” Tribute to
Former Eastern Captain Steve Thompson


The EAL Radio Show has a special “Hall of Fame” Award Plaque that we are presenting to our former Eastern Airline Pilot and EAL Radio Show Host, Captain Steve Thompson and will give this award to his wife Glenda and his family on Monday evening, September 25, 2017 at 7:00 P.M. We invite all of our Eastern Family and friends to participate over the radio with our hosts. Though we have only 25 call in telephone lines available at 213-816-1911, you can listen in on your computer by going to our Blog Talk at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/capteddie or go on our website:


The EAL Hall of Fame Plaque is given to honorable and noteworthy Eastern members who have been outstanding in their achievements and their dedication for Eastern Airlines. The purpose is to honor those that dedicate their lives to keep the Legacy of Eastern Airlines in the hearts and mind of the public and future generations. We want to preserve and memorialize the outstanding accomplishments of each member we induct into our Eastern Airlines Radio Show Hall of Fame. We know that Captain Steve Thompson was one of our heroes on the Flight 855 along with his Captain and Crew. He has also given the last few years volunteering as a Host for our EAL Radio Show Broadcast and has been our confidant in working to present worthwhile Episodes for the Eastern Family. He has done a marvelous job in every episode he participated in on Monday evenings.

Please join us in this special Episode as we would love to have as many of the Eastern Family and friends be there to honor him along with us.  Thank you for being part of our Eastern Family! We love you Eastern!

Air India Commander Grounded For Numerous Violations, Including Reckless Flying

                          By Dory Jackson @dory_jackson

Air India reportedly suspended an airline commander Thursday for a variety of alleged violations. The senior A-320 commander has come under fire for his misconduct, which includes recklessly driving the company's aircraft, according to Times of India. The senior commander's actions have been overlooked until now. He reportedly announced to airline passengers that Air India has made several violations and that he wouldn't take flight until the airline confessed to its mistakes. The commander's actions were reported to Air India by a senior Boeing 747 pilot that rode as a passenger on the flight, according to the Times of India. See more in Newsletter Online Aug-Dec17.

Princess Juliana Airport Severely Damaged

By Geoff Rapoport

https://cdn.avweb.com/media/newspics/170/p1bph3lpqbmjsif13j81k6h1uob6.jpgPrincess Juliana Airport, on the Island of St. Martin, has been severely damaged by Hurricane Irma’s Category 5 winds. Maho Beach, where tourists take photos under jets landing on the island’s 7,500-foot runway, is entirely underwater in recent photos. The same photographs show a thick layer of sand covering 30 feet of the runway overrun area. Winds reported at 185 miles per hour knocked down fences, destroyed jetways and threw heavy objects through windows in the terminal. The terminal area forecast from the airport immediately prior to the storm advised pilots they could expect winds from a heading 300 at 140 knots, gusting to 160 knots.
