Cattle flights

Other unusual trips, one in Dec. 1975, was a load of 150 head of cows going from Texas to S. Africa. Our crew picked this flight up in Philadelphia and flew them to Monrovia, Liberia with a fuel stop in Santa Maria, Azores. Another crew flew them down to Cape Town, S. Africa, then ferried it back to us and we ferried it to Billund, Denmark. They bulked out the aircraft with Hi-Fi electronic gear and we flew it to Windsor, Canada with a fuel stop in Bangor, Maine. Capt. John Willard and Co-Pilot Bob Peavler were on this trip. The second one in Oct. 1976 when we flew another load of 70 head of cows and a few horses up front from Bangor, Maine to Amsterdam, Holland. Capt. Frank Kleczek and Co-Pilot M. Katz were on this trip.
