Goldwater, Barry M.  died in 1988, aged 89. The existence of other allied ferry or ferrying commands often confused those searching for information on the RAFFC. Goldwater had been assigned as a pilot to an organization which was called Ferry Command, but it was not the RAFFC … http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barry_Goldwater  From his obituary in the Saturday, May 30th, 1998 Washington Post by staff writer Bart Barnes, Page A01, which also appeared on-line at
During World War II, Mr. Goldwater tried but was unable to get a combat flying assignment. He did get an assignment to the Ferry Command, a newly formed unit made up mostly of overage pilots who delivered aircraft and supplies to war zones all over the world, and he spent most of the war flying between the United States and India, via the Azores and North Africa or South America, Nigeria and Central Africa.

George Matt, designer – confirming a plaque commemorating – without an arrival date – the Spirit of Lockheed-Vega Employees T9465 Hudson bomber gift from the Lockheed and Vega aircraft manufacturing plant and their 18,000 employees to the City of London. See also Witnesses



Roderick B. Goff, weatherman in Gander, NL in December, 1940, (age 98 in 2015) witness to T9465, Spirit of Lockheed-Vega Employees runway crash, and author, Crossroads of the World: Recollections from an Airport Town. While not an eye-witness per se, he was told about the non-fatal crash. Roderick, was the weather forecaster on duty the night of Saturday, Dec. 29th, 1940 when this aircraft tried to take off on a flight to London, England. He had left his office for the night and in passing the air traffic control room, was told by the air traffic controllers on duty about the crash that had just taken place.

Gerry Harmann, 1986, Sicamous, BC, lead to his father, Ivan
Ivan Harmann, 1986, Westbank, BC and RCAF Gander, NL
After reading the author’s original manuscript covering the life of the late Sheldon Luck, Walking on Air, Mr. Harmann said he was moved by the three chapters in that book dealing with the Ferry Command and decided to donate a broken propeller tip which he said he had sawed off from the wreckage of Hudson bomber, T9465, The Spirit of Lockheed-Vega Employees, the morning after it crashed. He was an RCAF mechanic at the time, and had been instructed to clean up the wreck on the runway on which T9465 had tried to take off for a flight to London, England. The Lockheed and Vega aircraft manufacturing companies in Los Angeles, California, and their 18,000 employees had donated this aircraft to the folks of London as a morale-boosting gift. They knew that Londoners were going through a merciless bombing by the German air force, which came to be known as the Blitz of London. This aircraft did NOT arrive the following day, as had been hoped, but one bearing the same name, and containing a few of the panels from the original, signed by some employees, showed up in Wick, Scotland in March, 1941: its story is told in Book 1 of this quartet – Earth Angels Rising.

Elmer McClelland, Emerson, MB, Canada, child witness of the January 1940 horse-towing of bombers from USA to Canada. This was a lead from his cousin, retired Emerson school teacher James McClelland.
