Check out this amazing PNP video story!
Pilot John Davis gives a synopsis of the mission he flew on January 20, 2014, in this video. What he doesn’t mention is the time he spent trying to nail down the final plans to reunite Jacco, a military dog that spent his time in Afghanistan, with his former handler who now lives outside of Abilene, Texas. Once he was back in the States, Jacco had to endure ground transport from Florida to San Antonio, Texas.
John made the flight from Fort Worth, Texas to San Geronimo Airpark, which took a little over an hour in his Beechcraft Barron.
There, he met up with a good friend from the area that drove him to Hill Country Dog Center, where Jacco had been delivered. The military ‘hero’ dog was loaded into John’s plane, and was flown to Cisco Municipal Airport located just over an hour back north. The sight of the two ‘best friends’ being reunited was VERY emotional, and to be honest, I’m not sure who was more happy to see who.
Being a foster, myself, I always experience the emotion of seeing your special friend having to leave, so I was thrilled that John had invited me on this mission so I could see the other side of it. My ‘THANKS’ to every member of the Pilots N Paws Organization for the truly remarkable job each one of you do.
