Does anyone know my father?

My name is Michael Gold. I'm 17 years old, and I have a hearty interest in the airlines as a result of my father, Fred Gold. Dad still flies for US Airways, he's a captain on the B737-300/400 based in CLT. He was hired by PI in the mid-1980s, right before I was born. I sort of missed out on the actual Piedmont thing, but I was young enough that I caught some of it, and I blame the airline bug that I have on him and his stories of "the good old days". I'm just curious if any of you know him. I think it would mean a lot to him if it turned out that people remember him. I realize that Piedmont was a quite large company in the end, and that of the several thousand pilots, only a fraction use this site, and only a fraction of that fraction could have come into contact with him. He started in the 727s at Smith Reynolds (KINT) in Winston-Salem, NC.
