Captain J.C. Kalous retired Spirit Airlines. This picture taken a month or so before his retirement. The seat was in the shop getting repaired. J.C. was forced to retire at age 60 before the rule change allowed pilots to fly until their 65th birthday. The caption to this picture is, " They can take his seat away, but he will always be Captain Kalous to us." The plane is an Airbus A319.
J.C. is a big supporter of the museum and has donated many artifacts.

It is our sad duty to report the untimely death of Erik Valenzuela of Victorville, California. Erik was a huge help in moving the Martin cockpit into our museum. He was on his way to work at the scrapyard in Victorville when his car was involved in a collision with a cement truck. He was a single father and leaves 3 small children that are currently being taken care of by his father. Erik was a very hard worker and a good father to his children. He worked for Doug Scroggins in Victorville at ARC, Inc. He was also the person that dismantled the Martin in Wyoming. Our prayers go out for him and his family.
