Mark Danielson

B767 Captain Mark Danielson #231874 (Seniority #1092) will retire from FedEx Express on August 25, 2017 and his last flight is FDX 851/11Aug17  PHL-MEM 0926 CT.  Mark would like to share the following:

"It seems my pilot circle" is now complete.  As a young teen flying single-engine Pipers, I looked to the sky yearning to fly jets, and now as I approach retirement, I smile at GA planes, looking forward to flying mine on the days I choose.  I leave FedEx as one of its luckiest pilots.  Not only could FedEx always reuse my jet, but after my extended time off from an on-the-job injury, I was blessed to be trained on a new plane at age 64.  You never realize how much you love this job until you're grounded, and returning to fly the 767 with the Indy FDX 500 crew was a true privilege.  Sadly, my last flight ends in Memphis, not Indy.

As much as I look forward to retirement, I will always watch the jets flying overhead with fond memories and admiration.  To all that I've met along the way, thank you for your friendship and professionalism.  It's been a great ride!  Fly safe, Mark."
