Each week, we highlight a historic or famous person named James. This week's famous James is:

Colonel James Barney Swindal (born August 18, 1917 died April 25, 2006) Air Force pilot who was personal pilot for John F. Kennedy. He began flying for the President-elect in 1960 in a DC-6, replaced in late 1962 by a special-order Boeing 707. On November 22, 1963, when Swindal heard the news of the assassination, he and his crew unbolted enough seats in the rear of Air Force One so that the casket could be in the passenger area instead of the cargo hold. Swindal flew back to Washington at a cruising altitude of 41,000 feet, much higher than usual, because it was not known if the assassination was part of a large conspiracy or if Air Force One would be attacked. He also flew the plane over Arlington National Cemetery during Kennedy's funeral, tipping its wings in salute. Swindal stopped flying Air Force One early during the Johnson administration and retired from the Air Force in 1971. He joined the Air Force shortly after the 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. He flew transport planes in Asia during World War II, and took part in the 1948 Berlin airlift that brought food to west Berlin after the Russians closed off land access to Berlin.
