The temperature inside the museum at Robins Air Force Base in Warner Robins, Georgia, ideal for men in dinner jackets, was a little frosty for bare shoulders and a thin silk evening dress. But there was plenty of warmth from being with friends at the 2013 Georgia Aviation Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Since 1989, 100 aviators have been enshrined — sons and daughters of the south but with names iconic even to a Yankee: Epps (three generations of them), Pitts, Maule, Cochran, Rickenbacker, Bevo Howard, Allen Paulson, Lowe, Jungemann and a host of others. Last year I was honored to introduce my DC-3 mentor and friend from Griffin, Georgia, Bob McSwiggan. This year the honors were going to two men I’d known from the years I’d gone to Griffin to fly the DC-3 with Bob — Winn Baker and Ron Alexander. The third honoree, Lewis Jordan, is a Griffin boy who helped launch ValuJet and then AirTran, a hugely successful operation recently acquired by Southwest Airlines. I’m awed by that kind of business acumen, but I don’t know Mr. Jordan … c’mon, he isn’t a pilot.
