CAPTAIN MITCH ALLEN



I'm currently with Focus Air Cargo.
Flying out of Bangkok on a Thai Airways
cargo contract. Things never change,
just change the paint on the aircraft
to a different shade of blue.
After the USAF, I started with UACI in
1979 as S/O and upgraded to Captain on 
the DC-8 in '85. After that I have been 
a freight dog with other airlines. 

I helped Andy Barnes, Jim Tweddale, and 
Ron Smith start up Air Train, which became 
Emery Worldwide Airlines, and spent 15 years 
there, all I did was fly the line. 

I flew 747´s for Polar Air Cargo
after Emery closed. 

Currently I'm with Focus Air in the left 
seat on the B-747, flying out of Bangkok.

My Bride of 25 years is Apple Unchana  
Thamasak. Currently she is the Assistant 
Director for Clinical Services at IUPUI 
CAPS, (Indiana University, Purde University, 
Indianapolis) (Counseling and Psychological 
Services). 

We were one of the first couples to 
get married overseas. I think there were 
about 10 maybe more couples that got married 
while with UACI.

We have a boy who is 8 going on 15, Ty is a 
very smart boy. He is in the 3rd grade and 
likes to play the piano and work in his tree 
farm.

We bought our farm in '82 in Indiana, and 
started growing Black Walnuts trees in '89.
As I reach that golden year, I look back and
I remember UACI as one of the high points in 
my career as an aviator. I take the good with 
the bad and do not think I would change a 
thing.
  
Only the best to all and Happy Landings.

JEDDAH HILTON
SAUDI ARABIA


Jeddah is the gateway to the holy 
cities of Makkah and Madinah. 
Although Riyadh is the capital of 
the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Jeddah 
is known as its commercial capital. 
Since Jeddah is situated at the Red 
Sea coast, it is also known as Bride 
of Red Sea.

When I saw the Saudia B-747 pic, 
I remember the story about the 
white cross in the Saudia name.  
You do not have to look very 
hard, but between the S and A 
in saudia there is a white cross.  
The Saudia's were not happy when 
some one pointed it out to them. 
The new Saudia name had the 
letters changed.
Best from Mitch
