Delivery by Louise Sacchi through Shannon, type ? (Report relayed via Capitol International Airways, DC-8-63F, N4908C to Shanwick)

Further acclimation of Ms. Louise Sacchi achievements has to be made here:-
Made her first flying lesson in 1939
In 1955 earned an Airline Transport Pilot Rating
Flew to Europe in her Beech Bonanza in 1962
In 1965 started Sacchi Air Ferry Enterprises with customers in Europe, Africa and Philippines, as the first and only female international ferry pilot
Achieved her 100th ocean crossing in 1968, followed by 200th in 1973, 300th in 1976 and 340th in 1980 (more than any other non-airline pilot)
In 1978 a street in Gander was named "Sacchi Avenue"
Her book "Ocean Flying" was published in 1979 - (an interesting read!)
Sadly she passed away on 22nd March 1997
