Captain Jim Tilmon (ret.) American Airlines
CNN Aviation Correspondent
Due to a hectic schedule, I haven't been able to blog with regularity. But last night, I received a Tweet from a reader thanking me for the 2011 interview I was privileged to conduct with Jim Tilmon. It is accessible on my Blog Page by clicking on "The Interview" button. A veteran commercial aviation pilot and a meteorologist, today Jim is an aviation correspondent with CNN.
This past week, the entire world learned of the terrible news surrounding the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370--a Boeing 777 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. A number of pilots and experts from various transportation agencies have appeared on television outlets, in an attempt to bring some rational understanding to this unsolved tragedy. A total of 239 passengers and crew members are missing. Jim's authoritative analysis has proven to be helpful as the massive search effort continues. My thoughts and prayers are with the passengers and family members at this difficult time.
