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.

Walter Harper Mullikin

Walter Harper Mullikin was born in Hot Springs, Arkansas to William and LaVern Mullikin. He passed away peacefully in his home in Lake Wildwood at the age of 95, five days after a Birthday celebration with family and friends. He is survived by his wife Janet, his daughter Jane Mullikin, and his sons Walter Harper Mullikin Jr. and Robert Charles Mullikin. He is preceded in death by his wife Marie Sarah Mullikin and his daughter Ann Ledwidge Mullikin and his brother Harry Mulllikin.

His career in aviation was extra ordinary from his service in the Air Corps in 1944 to Senior Vice President of Flight Operations of Pan American Airways. In 1976, he commanded the Clipper Liberty Bell Express which set the commercial around the world record. In 1977, he commanded the Clipper New Horizon a round-the-world flight from San Francisco to San Francisco over the North and South Poles to commemorate Pan American’s 50th anniversary.

His many interests included photography, gardening, entertaining, and church involvement. He was a consummate gentleman and his engaging smile, graciousness and sincere interest in others will be missed by all.
A memorial service will be announced at a later date.
