Photo detail

Sam Taylor has secured his co-pilot, Amelia Earhart, to the seat and prepares to take flight to take the 8-month-old mixed breed dog to a foster family in Kansas. Taylor flew his single engine plane into the Jefferson City Memorial airport Friday morning and was on his way to Kansas with the pup in a short while. Each sticker below the window represents 25 dogs he has flown in his few years as a pilot with the Pilots N Paws Program.
