aloha means goodbye

last year, march 31, 2008, my former airline in hawai’i closed its doors and pulled back the air bridge for its final departure. a victim of ruthless and cutthroat competition by another shameless and nameless carrier (which i hope will “GO!” to ****), a lot of my fellow friends and islanders lost their jobs – pilots, flight attendants, mechanics, ground staff and the entire ohana at Aloha Airlines – became jobless quite literally overnight. i took some of these photos from my last days with the airline. we’ll miss the Bird of Paradise flying high over the pacific.

Aloha ‘oe!
