I made this picture video, of a few pics I took... while we flew as Independence Air. On the last few pics you see on the video, I'm working the last flight of Independence Air to Chicago, and was the last flight I ever worked. Jan 04, 2006...   I had a blast!

It is a shame that such a nice looking airline has to fold. I wish you all of my best wishes in your continuing career.

Thanks

Thanks for sharing. Your video helps to show how unfortunate events (or business plans) affect real people. I hope you land on your feet and find happy and fruitful employment elsewhere quickly!

Very nice video, reminds us that airlines are made up of people, & when an airline, ceases operation, many people feel the pain..

Wow! Excellent!

The part at the end was particularly moving, especially with the music slowing down at the same time that the west coast routes started to drop off the map.  Sad

Good luck for the future!

I was a loyal customer that stayed with you all until the very end. I'm going to miss FlyI and the great service that came with it. You all were great.

Good luck.

Great video, buddy.

I waved out a/c 627 this evening as flight 1743, the last Independence Air flight to leave Columbus. It still hasn't hit me that it's all over. Probably by day 3 or 4, when I'm going bonkers over the fact that I haven't been around jet fuel for over 72 hours, it'll come to me  tongue

Very Nice and Very Sad. I flew Independence and even was offered a job as a FA however shortly after I received a call saying that they were downsizing and that they would no longer need my services.

To all the Independence Air Family, Good Luck!

LuDavid777 - A Special kudos on the video, It was a very nice tribute. Good luck in whatever you have in store as you pursue further offers.
