One year ago today, Hawaii's Aloha Airlines ceased operations.

For those of you on Facebook, I created a group "REMEMBER ALOHA".

Aloha oe Aloha.

I was actually looking at flights on "that day" when the website sort of locked up. I then clicked the refresh to find the note posted.  Sad

That is very sad to re read and all.

The next two months will be filled of "one years" of shut down by the likes of Champion Air, ATA, Skybus, and Aloha Airlines.

Thanks for the FB link too!

a day that will live in infamy for those 2000 of us employees on that fateful day.



35 years of American Trans Air/ATA Airlines, 1973-2008. A great little airline that will not be soon forgotten.

1 year ago I was waiting on Maui to board Aloha's final flight, AQ 260 from OGG to HNL piloted by Aloha's most senior Captain and most junior First Officer. In true Hawaiian style the final flight was full of laughter, tears, stories and song.

It is hard to believe it's been a whole year. It's great to remember how Aloha flew her final flights with class, dignity, and a whole lot of heart!

Aloha was a great little airline with a colorful history and a top notch group of employees!

Here's to 61 AMAZING Years!!

Aloha, A Hui Hou, Until We Meet Again, Thank You for flying Aloha Airlines.



Aloha Airlines - The Spirit Moves Us. Gone but NEVER Forgotten. Aloha, A Hui Hou!

Glad I got to fly on them, and even more special for me, I was able to fly on the "FunBird". Great airline, will be missed!

Aloha! i can't believe its already been a year. i actually remember watching that news report from KHNL (or was it KGMB) that you were on and also interviewed in. hope all is well with ya!

Aloha Airlines will be missed but never forgotten.

i also still find it crazy to drive by the inter-island terminal and not see ANY AQ signage. on the other hand, at least we still have Island Air and Hawaiian Air!
