1st Pilots N Paws mission
 
For 5 years I've been receiving notifications about possible Pilots N Paws missions, but I never had one I could actually pull of until today. And it was definitely memorable. Unfortunately my phone completely died so I'm afraid I lost all the pictures I took, but thankfully there were some other cameras around…

Congratulations!
 
Wow, Bill, most of us only fly dogs and cats. I think you are the first I've heard of that has flown a BEAR CUB on a rescue flight. Congratulations on your first PnP flight!

Great job Bill
Awesome to see that the little fella is going to get the care and attention he needs. Made my day!

Bill,

Great work with the bear!

My wife and I flew quite a few Pilots n Paws dog rescues in our Bonanza, but I haven't flown a rescue mission since I got the -6 in February.

You have inspired me to get it going again.

Welcome!
 
THAT is one heck of a first PnP flight! I hope this is one of many for you.

Crossing my fingers for Cinder's full and quick recovery.

Awesome!! Thank you very much for volunteering.

Saw you on the local tv news. Too bad they didn't include a shot of your plane.
Good PR for GA, nice going.

Hey, that plane is way too nice to haul animals! No, no it's not......

Way to go - great story!
