Richard L. Andrews

In Memoriam

November 30, 1939 - January 12, 2024

Dick Andrews was hired by Tigers on April 4, 1966 and was a B747 Captain on T-Day.  The following is from George Gewehr:

Dick Andrews, was a very quiet sort of personality. He had very little to say about most things as opposed to just pilots in general. I flew with him more than once over the years but didn't know him very much you might say. He kept to himself on layovers and did his own thing. In the cockpit he was the same way, he would always have an answer to your question sometimes before you asked it.
