I would like to bring back into this generation's minds eye the forgotten American hero Douglas Corrigan, better known as Wrong Way Corrigan.

I took a poll recently and asked if people ever heard of Wrong Way. Most people think of him as some nut that flew the wrong way somewhere but he was much much more.

In the words of the New York Times article from July 17, 1938....
"Douglas Corrigan claims his place in the annals of aviation history when he "mistakenly" flies from New York to Ireland. With a single flight, Corrigan breaks the law, charms the Irish, becomes an American hero and earns an unforgettable nickname.""

Douglas Corrigan passed away at the age of 88 on December 15, 1995

I dedicate this blog to him.
