Tony Gaeta In Memoriam
UACI 747 Saudi colors
June 1979 - Febr 1981
Douglas DC-8-55F N851F,
Vic Deal was well known and liked as
a Captain on the Electra's and is
missed by all that new him.
Vic was hired in 1968 as an Electra Capt.
I believe he worked until the shutdown in
the late 70's. After the Electras sold I
think Vic flew f/o on other ONA aircraft.
My sincere condolences to the family.
Vick flew for AIA along with Gaeta,
Vuncannon, Witting and several other
old ONA DC-9 crewmembers.
Vic Deal died and then his wife upon
finding his body had a heart attack and
died. Rest In Peace.
I ran into Vic in Australia when he flew
for Arrow. My heartfelt condolences to
Linda Blakely heard the
sad news on
a local TV newscast.
ONA pilot Vic Deal had
seniority # 89.
