LUCAS V. BEAU
CAREER OFFICER, INSTRUCTOR
Lucas V. Beau landed
once at Tucson on May 10, 1929. He carried one passenger,
H.C. Cassidy. Based at Denver,
they were westbound, arriving from Lordsburg,
NM with a return
to Denver. They flew in a Douglas O2-H, number 28-349. He
became an instructor for the Colorado National Guard at Denver
in July 1928. This may have been a round-robin training flight.
Beau is a founding member of The
Order of Daedalians. He was a first lieutenant at the time
of his landing at the Davis-Monthan Airfield. He had received
that rank on July 1, 1920.
We are fortunate
to have an almost complete history of his military promotions
over the years (and some decorations). You may view that
history in this PDF file.
These documents come to us from site visitor
James E. Jones.
