Richard Cromwell Maguire
Birth: Apr. 8, 1904
Madison
Dorchester County
Maryland, USA
Death: Jul. 10, 1942
Memphis
Shelby County
Tennessee, USA

Aviation Pioneer. Captain Maguire made the first flight on instruments only in a commercial airliner in aviation history flying a DC-2 commercial airliner with 14 passengers on board from New York to Chicago. This historic flight on September 8. 1935, opened up a whole new era in the field of commercial aviation and was well documented by the Chicago and New York newspapers. Tragically, Captain Maguire died of a heart attack following an appendectomy. He was 38 years old. A group of pilots in full uniform chartered a plane and scattered his ashes over the farm where he grew up. (bio by: Dan Moore)
