“Memorial Day Commemoration and

Our Eastern Veterans”



The EAL Radio Show Episode 367 scheduled Monday, May 28, 2018, 2018, to honor our Veterans who have died in military service. Memorial Day, originally known as Decoration Day, is observed on the last Monday of May and began to honor Union soldiers who had died during the American Civil War. After World War I, it was extended to include all men and women who died in any war or military action and the same after World War II.


As we honor our veterans we look back on those of the Eastern Family who gave their life in war and then those that were lost in fatal incidents that occurred while working for Eastern, such as:


  1. August 10, 1937, EAL Flight 7, a DC-2-112 (NC13739), crashed on takeoff at Daytona Beach Airport.
  1. February 26, 1941, EAL Flight 21 crashed near Atlanta.
  2. July 12, 1945, Eastern Airlines Flight 45, a DC-3-201C (NC25647) flying Washington, DC to Columbia, collided in mid-air with USAAF A-26C Invader 44-35553 near Florence, South Carolina…and more.


We know that most of you in the Eastern Family have great memories of this holiday and what it meant personally to each one of you. Let’s hear your voices tell us more, so please call in at 213-816-1611 at 7:00 P. M. EDT as we depart the gate, on May 28, 2018 to share some of them.

“EAL Radio Show

 “Eastern Commemorates D-Day”


Another great program is planned for the EAL Radio Show, Episode 368 Monday evening, June 4, 2018 in honor of our upcoming US Holiday, “Eastern Commemorates June 6, D-Day” the first day of the Battle of Normandy and marks when thousands of Allied troops from the United States, Great Britain and Canada landed on beaches across the Normandy area of France. It was part of the effort to liberate areas of Western Europe from the control of the German Nazi forces.

The plane, a C-47 named “That’s All, Brother,” led the formation of 925 C-47s in the massive drop of 13,000 paratroopers behind enemy lines on D-Day, hours before the first troops stormed the beaches.

Join us as we honor our Veterans who fought for us during that war and who we give the highest honors to on this Memorial Day. The men that died even before they hit the beach were tragic and those veterans give us the courage to always honor the US Veterans all over the world.

Feel free to send us your story and E-mail them to: [email protected] Better yet, join us on the radio by calling in at 213-816-1611 and tell us about one.


We look forward to May 14, 2018, so please join us. Our call-in number is 213-816-1611 at 7:00 P. M. EDT as we depart the gate, or listen in by clicking this hyperlink: www.blogtalkradio.com/capteddie.

American, Allegiant Airlines In Spotlight As FAA Oversight Reviewed By AirWise May 9, 2018

A US Transportation Department review of the FAA’s oversight of airline maintenance will now concentrate on just Allegiant Air and American Airlines as inspectors “refocus” the audit. The Department’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) launched a review of the Federal Aviation Administration’s oversight of US air carrier maintenance in June last year, but said it will now adjust the scope of the review and refocus on Allegiant and American.
