    Default Does Anyone Remember Dale Morehouse (AK bush pilot 40's thru 70's)

    I'm looking for information about Dale Morehouse, who flew PBY's during the war and later was a bush pilot in Cordova, Port Moller and elsewhere. Last I heard in the 1980's, he had quite flying and ran a fish buying barge on Bristol Bay for awhile and then retired in Seattle.

    Any information on him, where he flew and when, what your association was, if any, and your memories, etc. would be appreciated.

    I think there was a guy named Tom Morehouse who works in the aviation part of UAA in Anchorage whom might be a relative.

    Also you might try the Aviation museum down by Lake Hood.

    You need to find Bud Rude who would be about 85 if hew is still alive.
    Bud has a long history with PBY's and once owned 12 up here in Alaska.

    Bud Rude began as a CFI at MRI, then went on to join Ray Petersen's Northern Consolidated Airlines. ​It's very likely he knew Tom Morehouse . . .

    Found this obituary when I googled the name after finding the pilots license on the FAA website indicating Dale Adams Morehouse with the last date of his medical, a third class medical in 1996. I started flying out of Cordova in 1977 and remember hearing his name, but nothing more comes to mind.
