W. Henry Renninger was born in Doylestown, Penn. During World War II he served as an Air Transport Command pilot, maintenance officer, and flight-test officer. He logged more than 4,000 flying hours. After the war, he was one of the original five founders of Seaboard & Western Airlines and was vice president of engineering and director of materials.
Shortly after the merger with Flying Tigers, Henry was honored when Doris dedicated a new Boeing 747F the "W. Henry Renninger." He is seen here with Doris at his retirement in 1963.
