Mike McConaughey (no relation to the actor he he he), the replacement. Mike and Dan crossed paths somewhere mid-Pacific. On two separate modes of transportation. Probably two different aircraft.

I met Mike in the foyer prior to one of the dinners and he told me the story of being the replacement for an injured 463 crew chief and of never having met him. I immediately took him by the arm and went into the banquet hall and introduced him to Dan. This particular 'reunion' this year really cemented for me just why we do these Gatherings. It gave me a great deal of pleasure and satisfaction.
