This weeks FNF honors Black History month with a dedication flight for Capt. Marlon Green.
Capt. Green retired from the U.S. Air Force in 1957. He was denied a pilot position with Continental Airlines based solely on the color of his skin.
He fought 6 years until in 1963 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled to not allow airlines to discriminate in their pilot hiring process.
Capt. Green flew as a Continental Airlines pilot from 1965 for 14 years.
