Fatal Plane Crash History
By Elizabeth Wingren Kometz

I would like to echo the comments made by my sister, Margie Wingren
Hildre regarding the article on fatal plane crashes by Dave Kiffer.
Our uncle Tom Gaffney does deserve acknowledgement not only for
his place in Ketchikan history as an Ellis Airline pilot. But,
also as the wonderful son, brother, father & uncle he was
to his family.
Thank you SitNews for your website. It provides a way for those
of us no longer living in Ketchikan to keep in touch. I especially
enjoy the articles about the history & people of Ketchikan.
Many of them bring back fond childhood memories and an appreciation
for our parents, Al & Mary Wingren & where I was born
