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.

Kenneth Baker

Kenneth Baker, 80, of Baldwin, passed away in Sarasota, FL on Sunaday, December 14, 2014.
Ken was born August 26, 1934 in Fremont, to his father Kenneth E. Baker and his mother Pauline Morrison, both deceased.

Ken worked at several jobs in his younger days but his claim to fame had always been being a pilot. co-pilot and flight engineer for Pan American Airlines.

He loved Pan Am, flying and the traveling it provided him. He had been around the world several times and lived in wonderful places throughout his career with Pan Am; Hong Kong, Australia, Guatemala, Hawaii and California, to name just a few. He was proud that a little boy who had grown up on a farm in a small Michigan town could rise to this achievement and make his dreams come true.

Ken also spent four years in the U.S. Air Force which he was very proud of. He tried to encourage other young men to sign up for the military and described what pride they would feel after serving their country.
Ken was loved by so many. He spent a lot of time helping others. He never received much recognition for his kind deeds as he did them anonymously much of the time. He is missed by everyone who knew him.

Ken is survived by two loving sons, Kenneth Bolt Baker and Brian Baker; Peggy Katt, his loving companion who walked by his side for nearly thirty-seven years; three sisters, Susan (Jim) James, Amy McCarty Baker and Zaida Bradley. He also leaves behind numerous grand and great grandchildren whom he loved and enjoyed very much.
