Frederick S. Ferguson, Jr.

In Memoriam

September 24, 1940 - November 5, 2018

Captain Fred Ferguson was hired by FTL on 8/28/1967 and continued to fly for FedEx after T-Day.

Fred flew west at age 78 and leaves behind his wife, Jean Ferguson (shown with Fred below).  Plans are for a closed family service.



The following comes from John Beatty:

Fred was tired of bad and sad newspaper stories about FTL during the Stephen Wolfe era.  What resulted was a world speed record on a commercial air route from San Fransisco, CA to Columbus, OH.  Fred was a good friend and a real aviator.
