A Tribute to Aloha Airlines

Late last evening, March 31, 2008, Aloha Flight AQ261 arrived in Honolulu from Maui. It was Aloha Airlines' final scheduled passenger flight. Aloha had publicly announced the shut down of its passenger operations just two days ago on March 30, 2008.

Here's a video tribute to a great airline, produced by Aloha employees - the Aloha ʻOhana.

You might also want to have a look at the AQ ʻOhana's wonderful collection of photos of Aloha employees and their families on PBase.

As a Hawaii resident and long-time customer of Aloha Airlines, I'd like to say to all of the Aloha ʻOhana:

"Mahalo nui loa, me ko`u aloha. A hui hou."
