I WANT TO THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR WHAT YOU AND THE REST OF YOUR TEAM ARE DOING FOR THE RELIEF EFFORT IN THE WAKE OF OUR DISASTER. I WAS TOTALLY AWE STRUCK WHEN I FOUND OUT ABOUT THE AVAILABILITY OF A FLIGHT BACK TO COLORADO FOR ONE MEMBER OF A MEDICAL UNIT THAT STAYED BEHIND. ONLY GOD COULD HAVE ORCHESTRATED A MIRACLE LIKE THIS.
DAN IS SO GRATEFUL AND JUST COULD HARDLY BELIEVE IT. IF YOU COULD EITHER CALL OR E-MAIL WHEN WE SHOULD HAVE DAN AT THE AIRPORT , WE WILL BE ANXIOUSLY WAITING. AGAIN THANK YOU SO MUCH AND GOD BLESS
A big Thank You goes to Pilot Andi Biancur and Co-Pilot Bruce Mosier for volunteering to make this flight in Andi's V-35 Bonanza

Subject: re: Mississippi trip
Our trip to Mississippi was fantastic. Two of the doctors worked in the free clinic and they saw about 450 patients in 5 days. I went into the community with the other doctor and a nurse, and we provided medical and psychological assistance to about 100 homebound and homeless people. Everyone we helped was so appreciative.
We took a bunch of pictures and I hope to put together an electronic photo album for you and the other contributing pilots shortly. The devastation was absolutely overwhelming. I doublt I'll ever again see a 600 foot casino barge 500 yards inland on top of a hotel!
All of our flights were ontime. Given what I now know about the anxiety level of two of these docs it was a good thing we went commercial!
Again, thanks for making this trip possible.
This round trip made possible and partially financed by your Airport Associations Katrina MercyFlight Fund !
" thanks Meadow Lake for the transportation..."
This is the team of Doctors and Nurses your contirbutions to the MLA Katrina Mercy Flight Fund helped!
