HISTORY IN THE MAKING
We are happy to announce that one of our members, Casey Grant, has started a campaign for February 16, 2022 to be honored as International Black Aviation Day. Her Goal is to have her book Stars and Beyond - Stories of Black Heroes in Aviation available for students' use as a resource for Black Aviation History.
WE SHALL NEVER FORGET
When Doves Fly paid tribute to our first respondents on the airplanes. We commemorated the 20th anniversary of 9/11 reflecting and remembering the attack on U.S. soil on September 11, 2001. This devastating event has left an indelible mark in our lives, country and the travel industry. Let's do our part to ensure that WE SHALL NEVER FORGET.
We'll salute each fallen flight crew member (the first respondents on the airplanes in the line of duty) by name the last ten minutes of the show.
Thank you for celebrating Black History Month
