Capt. Slaughter was a gentleman. I talked with him many times
when he would start or end his flight at GSO. I don't ever remember him
saying an unkind word about his fellow crew members or anyone else. In talking with him you would never know his uniform carried 4 stripes on the sleeve. My thoughts & prayers are with his family. He will be missed!
One hell-of-ah pilot. A Buddy, a mentor, a golfer, a prankster, a soldier, a lover, a poet; but most of all, a flyer. He was "The upmost -- to say the very least." And I've missed him -- many many days before he ever past.
I have fond memory of Capt. B.B. Slaughter, Played golf with him in PI golf tour at Myrtle Beach Nat`l ,I think it was held in the 1980`s. He flew into CHO when I first started with PI in 1959 . He flew DC3`s at that time. I think of him every time I drive by Bsy Tree Golf course on SC Rt. 9 near Little River, S.C.
