I am so happy to have consulted RAPID RESCORE CREDIT for my credit repairs. I discovered that I had 5 negative items on my credit most especially IRS, delayed payments and loans and over 7 hard inquiries from every bureaus and it hindered me from moving forward in my business. I could not access any loan so I started looking for ways to salvage my condition, I then discovered this specialist (RAPID RESCORE CREDIT) on reddit though there were other ones there but my instinct directed me towards Mr Jackson. I was asked for funds to get started with the job and I gave them the benefit of doubt and made some commitments. My fico score was moved from 609 to an excellent score (799) and all the negatives were deleted from my report. Right now I have a clean profile with wonderful trade lines. I’m recommending their services to anyone in dire need of credit fix, you can reach them via JACKSONRAPIDCREDITSCORE@GMAIL.COM

I strongly JERRYLINK CREDIT GROUP: I think they are the best in terms of credit repair. I had worked with different credit companies in the past, but there was no significant change on my credit report. So many credit forums recommended DYI, I tried every credit hack in the book all o no avail. A real estate agent introduced me to Mr. Jerry, who has been helping his clients. Mr. Jerry and his team helped me erase all the negative things on my report, and raised my score to excellent score across all three bureaus. I’m recommending as promised. They are available on gmail: JERRYLINKGROUP AT GMAIL DOT COM or +16265140620

We will fix your credit; remove all negative items, clear loans, collections and hard inquiries and also raise your score to 760+ ASAP. These were the exact words from M. Jerry when I contacted him via JERRYLINKGROUP at GMAIL dot COM. I decided to give JERRYLINK CREDIT GROUP a try and to my greatest surprise it worked out for me. In less than 11days after all documentation; my score drastically increased to 810 across the three national credit bureaus (Equifax, Experian and TransUnion), I could no longer sight evidence of collections, negative marks, mortgage loan, collections and hard inquiries on my credit report. I honestly appreciate Mr. Jerry for fixing my credit.

My Uncle, John W.Preston,Jr., flew the mail in the 80 from S.F. to Cheyenne into extreme headwinds. Said they knew every farmer south and west after force landings and calling for the gas truck to get them the rest of the way.

There is an article in American Airman April 1961 telling about the airplane and Philip Redden saving it from the Anchorage dump. The article also has a photo of the plane in the dump I have a large print of the airplane and Jack Lefler from Boeing thanking Phil for saving the plane.
Philip Redden is also credited for saving The Sikorsky 39 (NC308W) in the New England air Museum
along with Sikorsky 39 NC85V
Redden was the curator and founder of the Air Transportation Museum in Anchorage AK
Redden was part of saving a Swallow T.P NC8760, Stinson SM8 and a SM2, Fairchiled 22,
Curtiss Robin, also helped in restoring about a half dozen Stinson 108s
and that is not counting the 100 of Antique cars he saved
The guy from the Anchorage times getting the credit for saving the NC224M has NO record of saving any thing.

To Craig Vetter and others, Yes, the 80A was towed to the dump. My father, Philip Redden along with my mother, spent hours salvaging the plane from the dump. I recall several evenings (only time they could get permits from the city to tow the oversized plane) them towing the parts and pieces home to our yard and into the shed Dad built for it. He kept the plane there for years until he could get Boeing to fund transporting the plane back to Boeing for restoration. Jack Lefler of Boeing was interested and took charge of the Boeing end of the project. Had it not been for my parents, the plane would have been long gone and rotted away.

I also spent time in the cockpit of the "yellow peril" during 1957-1959. I did not know the type or history of the aircraft until reading about it in R E G Davies "Airlines of the United States". I guess sitting in that cockpit implanted a life long interest in aviation in others beside myself. When
you're 10 you don't appreciate the connection to history.

Re Crag Vetter's comment, I also remember the old yellow Boeing sitting at Merrill Field. The engines had been removed, and the old bird looked pretty forlorn at that time.... Somewhere in my home I'm sure there are also some photos of that Boeing.


Craig Vetter, e-mail, 30.04.2011 07:59

Well, not exactly "found at a garbage dump" It was towed there in 1960 after many efforts to get Boeing interested. This was Bob Reeves'"Yellow Peril" I have pics of the plane parked at Merrill Field if you are interested. I used to climb up and sit in the cockpit.

The Museum of flight in Seattle, Washington has the only remaining Boeing Model 80 on display. It was found in a garbage dump in Anchorage Alaska and restored.

The Boeing 80 was really the first aircraft used by United Air Lines. It was originally flown by Boeing Air Transport, until she acquired Pacifie Air Transport and the two of them merged with National Air Transport. The fianl addition of Varney Air Lines resulted in the union of four airlines united into one as United Air Lines.
United Air Lines then received the contract to fly the northern coast-to-coast route through Chicago, whille TWA received the central route through St. Louis, and American Airlines received the southern route through Dallas. Much later on, since United Airlines western city was San Francisco, a fourth transcontinental route was awarded to Northwest Air Lines and that route started from Seattle instead of San Francisco.
