Roy McCaldin

Arizona Aviation Hall of Fame
Enshrined 2005

During his World War II service, Lt. Roy McCaldin was shot down near Berlin flying a B-17. Listed as an MIA, he and his crew were recovered by the Russians and eventually returned to England.

After the war, he earned a Doctorate in Engineering, became a national leader in clean air research, and reached a top-level of management with the United States Public Health Service.

In early retirement, Roy became deeply interested in soaring, setting records for distance and altitudes. In later years, Roy built his own replica of the World War I era Dehavilland-DH-4 aircraft. He has flown this aircraft all over the United States at hundreds of Air Shows entertaining young and old alike.
