Hubert DeVault McLean

M, b. 28 August 1895, d. 30 March 1929

Cause of death: on 30 March 1929 Died in an airplane crash while flying at Tampico, Mexico. Hubert DeVault McLean died on 30 March 1929 at Tampico, Mexico, at age 33 Hubert piloted the first plane brought to Asheville, North Carolina. He enlisted in the aviation corps in January 1915, and was appointed sergeant in the 15th Aero Squadron, Signal Corps, October 1, 1917, at Hazlehurst Field, Mineola, New York. He was at Rockwell Field, San Diego, California in 1919. Hubert also served as an instructor pilot at Mitchell Field.
Hubert was chosen as one of four pilots to make the first transcontinental flight attempted by the United States Army under the leadership of Major Albert D. Smith and he bears the distinction of being the only pilot to return with the same plane.
Shortly after World War I, he was a border patrol using DH-4 airplanes and he was established along the Mexican border. Lieutenant Hubert McLean was in command of a detachment first at Eagle Pass and later Del Rio. One of his subordinates was 2nd Lieutenant (later General) James (Jimmy) Dolittle. Lieutenants McLean and Dolittle were recommended for permanent commission in the Air Service, Regular Army, on the same letter (July 2, 1920). Hubert retired from the army in 1921.
Hubert joined the Mexican Gulf Oil Company circa 1921. He organized an aerial motor transport company in Mexico, which became part of Aviation Corporation of America. He was flying the payroll in a Fairchild for outlying camps when his plane hit a wire as he dipped to make the drop. The two passengers lived. Because of the bandits, payrolls had to be transported and dropped by air. At his funeral the floral arrangement was in the shape of a large airplane. It was said over five thousand people attended. Services were conducted by Rev. G. W. McClanahan and Rev S .M. Rankin. His death was reported as far away as New York City in both the Times and World newspapers.

He was buried in 1929 at Friedens Lutheran Church Cemetery, Gibsonville, Guilford Co., NC.

William McLean, 78, ex-aviation director
William E, "Buck" McLean, a onetime barnstorming aviator who guided the development of the Orlando International Airport as the city's aviation director for more than a decade, died Monday at Orlando Regional Medical Center. He was 78.
"He was the pioneer in aviation for the city," said longtime friend Fred Turner. "He will probably be remembered as having had the vision and foresight for what the McCoy Airport could be."
When he became aviation director in the mid-1950s, the city's main airport was Orlando Executive, then called Herndon Airport.
"He was an aviation professional from the old school," said Wally Sanderlin, a former city council member who served on the city's aviation advisory board.
"He started out barnstorming and probably was the foremost aviation expert in Orlando during his time. The transition from Herndon to McCoy airfield was due to his leadership."
McLean retired in the late 1960s and moved to Crystal River, where he lived until 1980 when he moved to Oklawaha.
He was admitted to Orlando Regional Medical Center in late April.
Born in Guilford County, N.C., McLean was a Lutheran and a member of several organizations, including Composite Lodge 293 F&AM, the Orlando Scottish Rite Bodies, the Orlando York Rite Bodies, the Bahia Shrine Temple and the National Sojourners. He also belonged to the Heros of '76, the Quiet Birdman, the Three Coast Club and the Society of American Military Engineers.
His wife, Thesta, died in 1954.
Survivors include sons, Dick H., Oklahawa, David M., Windermere, James E. Tuscaloosa, Ala., Bill E., Austin, Texas; daughter, Sophie Ann Norman, Charleston, S.C; 11 grandchildren; one great-grandchild.
