Good News!!!

The James Hartley Building Memorial Plaque has been located!

Captain Fred Pollino very quickly responded to my message of last night that it is mounted on the wall at the New Eastern Offices in Building 5A on the 4th floor. The address is 4200 NE 36th Street, Miami, FL 33166…

Fred is the Manager of Flight Standards for the New Eastern and is one of the very early pilots hired there… He is an Army Veteran (flew helicopters) and recipient of the Purple Heart…

He also is an Affiliate Member of REPA and is one of the 296 folks on my EALinfo Email List…

Fred stated that he will send me a photograph of the plaque, which I will forward on to retired Eastern Captain J. P. Tristani, who was contacted by Captain Bob Wilbur’s son regarding the plaque…

Many will remember J. P. from our Eastern days… After which he took his considerable talents and thoughts to the Germans where he flew to age 65…

Also he is a frequent contributor on Fox News when a real expert on aviation is needed!
