Bill Willis

Recommended Posts

I know there are some ex-Transafrik guys on this forum. I wasn't really sure where to post this, so here is as good as any place.

Sadly, Capt Bill Willis passed away on 1 April in the VA hospital in Houston, TX. He was waiting on a liver donor.

Bill was an extremely popular 727 captain -- probably (hopefully) the only male captain I ever flew with that had a pony tail. He will be missed.

Check this photo taken sometime around 1994. The gentleman on the left is Alex, an Angolan loadmaster, then Paul Stoffanella (a Belgian 727 FO), Ray Bennegar (Transafrik's 72 year-old chief 727 pilot) and then Bill Willis on the right.
