Mark Noah Mark Noah
Founder of History Flight
Finding the Fallen; The Search for America's Missing-in-Action Servicemen

Tuesday, April 22, 2014
7 p.m. – Spellmann Center
Anheuser-Busch Leadership Room

Mark Noah was born in and grew up in Asia as the son of a US State Dept diplomat. Living in Asia and hearing the stories of his uncle in the 1st Marine Division and grandfather in the Navy in WWII gave him an intense interest in the Pacific war from a very early age.

Mark was educated at Westminster College Preparatory School in Hartford, Connecticut and Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia.

Flying model airplanes since the age of 8 and real airplanes since 15, Mark is a complete and total aviation nut.  Mark bought and restored several WWII airplanes and turned them into History Flight (a non-profit group that he founded), selling rides in exchange for donations and using the proceeds to support WWII MIA search activities.

History Flight has funded research and search activities in the Marshall Islands, Tarawa (where they surveyed the locations of 179 lost graves of the 2nd Marine Division), The Missing Aircrew Project, The WFI research group and the BentProp project. Having acquired a fairly substantial knowledge base doing restorations, his main skill set is aviation structures and aviation history. His next project is to restore an FG-1D Corsair - although to make it a flyer might be a long shot.
