That was our church choir from St. Anthony’s on the Lake Parish in Pewaukee, WI. It was most special as it was our choir director’s last “concert” before her retirement as well!

what a lovely gesture..as a norm, retiring pilots are treated to a waterspray arrival by the airport firetrucks,and a cake and ballons at the entry gate..this was an added bonus for this man! i wish him the best in his retirement...

Many years back my uncle made his retirement flight and his son, who was a pilot for another airline, was allowed to be his 2nd officer (co-pilot). I can't remember, but I think their airlines were Eastern and Delta. The passengers were served champagne and cake. I don't know, but I'll bet it wasn't just coke and sandwiches in the cockpit.

Wow! A tip of the cap to the choir and the flight attendants who made the arrangements for the choir to honor the pilot.

So many pilots get medically retired. He obviously took good care of himself and was able to make the most of his career. Classy pilot!

65 is NOT old if you aren't a slug and stay active.

Something's off, or perhaps incomplete, in this story. As written, it suggests he had arrived directly from Ireland at K5. That's not an international arrivals gate - indeed, not even in the right building for international arrivals.

You NEED to quit wasting time on believing in and spreading mythology.

Although antithetical to your mythological beliefs, why don't you educate yourself before you go out as another clueless sheeple. I sincerely hope you haven't procreated, continuing the cycle of ignorance!
