Chuck was one of my two favorite captains when I was a young "green" co-pilot back in the late 70s to mid 80s at Allegheny/USAir. Whether I had a 1, 2 or 3 day trip with Chuck, I knew I would always have a VERY enjoyable time. I was lucky enough, in those early days, to learn from the best of the best. Chuck was a mentor, as well as a gentleman in the true sense of the word. "Checking out" as captain was a wonderful milestone one looked forward to and would likely never forget; the only sad element was not being able to share the flight deck with respectable individuals such as Chuck. RIP, Chuck, you'll be well missed Captain Fred Freshwater, Allegheny/USAir/American - retired
