Sandra - Thank you for the touching post about Captain Martin and your mother. I am sorry that I cannot help you with any personal information about either of them, but I can help you get a copy of "PIEDMONT: Flight of the Pacemaker" that has just been released. It is loaded with photos, and there is certainly a good chance you’ll find a photo of Capt Martin.
To obtain a copy, go to the Piedmont Aviation Historical Society (PAHS) section of JETPIEDMONT.COM at [www.jetpiedmont.com
] and print an order form. Alternatively, there are plans to have another book signing next Sunday, March 5th, at Smith-Reynolds Airport in Winston Salem. We will post the times here on the website.
I have seen the book and it is truly exceptional. I do not remember Captain Martin personally, but I was a volunteer crew member for several airshow seasons when the restored DC-3 started flying out of Winston Salem. It is very possible he flew one or more of those trips that I had the privilege of working. It was always fun, we were always proud to show this wonderful airplane, and we were always warmly received by the public.
Good luck in finding more information about Capt Martin. I would urge you to thoroughly explore the JETPIEDMONT website [www.jetpiedmont.com
] and log on regularly. Hope to see you on the 5th!
