Check out the Foynes Flying Boat Museum, in Foynes, Ireland.  A great museum featuring their fantastic new exhibit – a full scale replica of the Boeing B314 “Yankee Clipper”.  This replica was created for the museum from detailed plans by a team specialising in movie sets, and the reviews they have received of the aircraft are fantastic.

Audubon Henry Neff

Audubon Henry Neff, 97, long time resident of Saratoga, California died peacefully at home on January 5th with his children by his side.

Henry was born April 18, 1917 in Weatherford, Oklahoma. Graduated from Southwestern Oklahoma State University, 1941. He got his flight training through the Civilian Pilot Training Program and taught flying at the University of Arkansas. He joined Pan American World Airways in 1943.

He married his beautiful wife Marilyn, a PAA stewardess in 1948. Henry transferred to The San Fransisco domicile in 1957. He and Lynn decided to build their home and settle down in Saratoga.

Henry retired in 1977, enjoyed the many Clipper Pioneer group functions, their lovely place on Maui, friends and family.  Lynn passed away in 2008, Henry remained in his home in Saratoga.

His children Tamra Taylor, wife of the late Capt. James Robert Taylor (Pan Am/Delta) and son Capt. David T. Neff (American) feel blessed to have had this kind man as their father. We will miss him terribly but will remember him as a gentle, quiet, loving father, grandfather and dear friend to so many.
