On the morning of January 4, 2018, I received an email from our fellow photographer, Darryl Sarno, notifying me that John Wegg, the founder of this publication, had passed away in New Zealand.

Hello, Airways My name is Davis Miller, and I am a 17-year-old home-schooler who has a burning passion for commercial airlines, aircraft, and airports.
