Five Pups leave Texas for the hills of TN
February 23, 2014
Fly 5 small mixed breed dogs from a high kill shelter in the Dallas area to Columbia, TN for the Russell Rescue – TN. If they were not rescued, 100 % chance of being PTS.
Flight 1 – Rockwall, TX (East suburb of Dallas)
Flown by, Ryan Abbey. Ryan is an airman in the USAF, based at Little Rock AFB, AR.
His aircraft, 1948 Ercoupe.
Flight 2 – Searcy, AR to Columbia, TN
Flown by, Jim Carney , Germantown, TN.
His aircraft, 1977 Cessna Skylane.
The two flights to save the pups went very well. Ryan had a little fog in the Rockwall area but it burned off and he was able to land for the pick up. It is a long flight from Dallas to Searcy, AR in an Ercoupe. Actually, since Ryan lives in Searcy, it was a round trip from Searcy, AR to Rockwall, TX and back to Searcy, AR.
My flight with the pups to Columbia, TN was a non- event.
Mary Rogers and Melinda of Russell Rescue – Texas base and Tennessee base.
Thanks for saving the lives of these cute small dogs.
Job well done by all,
