I arrived at Island Airlines Hawaii (IAH) at a turbulent time. This relocation from the U.S. Virgin Islands to Honolulu was not quite working as planned. I moved from one bankrupt company to another. IAH previously had 2 aircraft accidents and currently were operating 1 Beech 18. The previous President was on trial for shooting patrons in a bar. The primary investor, First Venture Corp has taken over and looking to work with the creditors to keep IAH flying. I  came on around November 1983 as Director of Maintenance to review current company practices and make appropriate changes. It didn't last long and  the doors were closed. First Venture Corp wanted to continue so a new company was established...                           Rainbow Islands Cargo
