Maureen O'Hara Blair was an incredible lady. A classy lady that was down to earth and a pleasure to work with. At AAB

she was Mrs. Blair and always very much part of the business. Her and Capt. Blair were indeed the dynamic duo. After the death 

of her beloved husband in 1978, Mrs. Blair showed incredible strength and took over as president of AAB and provided the leadership to guide us in the coming years. She will always be remembered for being the very special person she was.
