          The 5th Annual EAL Hall of Fame

  Honoring Eastern Executive, John P. Ingle Jr.

The EAL Radio Show has a special “Hall of Fame” Award Plaque that we are presenting to former Eastern Executive, John P. Ingle Jr. on Monday, September 24, 2018 at 7:00 P.M. EDT. This is our 6th Annual EAL Radio Show Hall of Fame.

 

The EAL Hall of Fame Plaque is given to honorable and noteworthy Eastern members who have been outstanding in their achievements and 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 now for future generations. We want to preserve and memorialize the outstanding accomplishments of each member that we induct into our Eastern Airlines Radio Show Hall of Fame.

 

W e honor Admiral John Ingle, a past Admiral during his tenure in the U. S. Navy and former 41-year Eastern Executive. John was a great friend of the Eastern Family and though we prefer to give an award to the recipient in person to thank and congratulate them for their outstanding achievement, unfortunately, John's award will be given posthumously. This award extends our deepest gratitude to show that we will never forget John's accomplishments.

John was instrumental working with the Florida Aviation Historical Society, Tampa, FL as well as his contributions as a REPA Affiliate member, of articles he wrote as Co-Editor for REPArtee. Captain Neal knows first-hand how John worked tirelessly when he was Editor of REPArtee, as well as the other Eastern activities John contributed to over the years. John, too, was Neal's closest friend.

We look forward to September 24 to honor John, so please join us. Call-in at 7:00 P. M. EDT at 213-816-1611. Please, those that do call to listen, mute your phone to avoid background noises. You may use your computer to hear us at our Blog Talk website: www.blogtalkradio.com/capteddie as we depart the gate. We love you Eastern!

Boeing''s Chief Test Pilot and F-18 Test Pilot,
Captain Ricardo Traven

Our next EAL Radio Show, on Monday, Date TBD 2018 at 7:00 P.M. EDT will feature Chief Test Pilot for the Boeing Company in Charleston, SC, Captain Ricardo Traven.


Captain Neal, Jim Holder, Don Gagnon, myself and the REPA attendees had the pleasure of meeting Captain Traven at the Boeing company tour that REPA planned for us while at the convention. The tour with Captain Traven was outstanding. We were educated as to how the Boeing aircraft was crafted and shown the hangar with some gorgeous planes being worked on by the Boeing Team. A great tour, but more importantly was meeting Captain Traven and having his expertise that enhanced our tour from beginning to end.

Boeing Fighter Pilot, Captain Ricardo Traven is a graduate of the Royal Military College of Canada, as well as Captain Ricardo being the Boeing Chief Test Pilot for all models of the Hornet family of aircraft. This includes the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet and the EA-18G Growler. He is also the Boeing air show Demonstration Pilot for the Super Hornet and recently expanded his flight test duties to include a 737 type rating and flight testing on the U.S. Navy’s P-8 program. Captain Ricardo has flown more than 4,000 hours in 30 different aircraft over the span of his career. After a successful start in the Royal Canadian Air Force testing planes, he moved onto Boeing. Twenty years later, he’s the Head Test Pilot for the Boeing company’s F/A-18 Programs.


We look forward to having you join Captain Neal and Captain Travin live, by calling into our program at 213-816-1611 at 7:00 P. M. EDT.
