Rosie Rosenstein comments:
„Many of us at old PAN AM will remember Captain Jack D’Arcy as a good friend to the maintenance folks at old PAN AM HGR (Hangar) 17. He would walk the HGR floor chatting to the crews and spend much time in the HGR 17 shift foreman’s office. Always had much good constructive comments to all. Always would comment to me when are we having the next management dinner?“.
