George (Gerald) Weller. His biography reads like a Who's Who of flying: Pioneer of the commuter airline industry. Co-founder of the National Aviation Hall of Fame. Helped build America's first jet. He even met one of the Wright brothers. To George Weller, flying planes in blue skies and searching for grass runways was the new frontier. Weller, owner and operator of Paradise Air Tours in Honolulu, died March 23, 2000 in Illinois from complications of a stroke and Alzheimer's. He was 80. "He had a tremendous historical knowledge about military aviation," said Robert Fukuda, former U.S. attorney in Hawaii. "Our friendship goes way back. He was a wonderful man, a really good friend." Weller, born in Detroit and raised in Meadville, Pa., "came from a pretty harsh childhood," said son Robert Weller, who lives in Kona. His father was driven in life by a love of flying and a fear of boredom, Weller said. "Flying was his whole life. He was ahead of his time. He often had 15 ideas on the drawing board. People who laughed at him, stopped laughing when his ideas became successful." Weller worked in aviation his entire life, from aeronautical engineer to pilot, to flight instructor, to oft-quoted aviation expert on CNN. While serving in the Air Force during World War II, he helped design the nation's first jet, the Bell P-59, first flown in 1942. He also helped build the first aircraft to break the speed of sound, the Bell X-1. He was founder and president of several airlines, including the first commuter airline, called Wright Airlines in Cleveland. It was also the first to be financed by the sale of stock on Wall Street. He helped found the National Aviation Hall of Fame, chartered by Congress. He also co-founded the Air Force Museum Foundation and helped raise over $10 million to support what has become the world's largest air museum, in Dayton, Ohio. Weller's wife, Ada, brought them to Hawaii in the early 1970s through a job promotion in a cosmetics company. "He absolutely loved Hawaii," she said. "He fell in love with it." He began Paradise Air, which offered land and air tours of Oahu. He made a lifelong friend of his competitor, Hans Mueller, owner of Hawaiian Air Tour Service. "He was very, very upright and extremely bright. He had a lot of depth as well," said Mueller. "He wasn't all talk." Weller is also survived by daughter Penny Howard, son Bruce Weller, seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Services have been held.

Robert Wenkam, an environmentalist and renaissance man who fought to preserve Hawaii's beaches, volcanoes and jungles before it became popular to do so, died early yesterday in his sleep. Wenkam, who had turned 80 on New Year's Day, died of heart arrhythmia at a Reno, Nev., conference for American travel writers. Wenkam photographed, wrote and published at least a dozen pictorial books on Hawaii and other parts of the world. He brought the Sierra Club to the state and was one of the first members of the state Land Use Commission. Wenkam helped zone all of the land in Hawaii, leading to "the large open space we have today," as an original member of the commission in 1960. "There was too much buying and selling of land. No one was watching over the future," Wenkam told the Star-Bulletin in 1998, after he testified before the Legislature to save the commission. Wenkam was also an architect and designed numerous landmarks, including the fountain near Kapiolani Park. "He did so many things for Hawaii a lot of people don't know about," said Tad Wenkam, one of four surviving children, who lives in Volcano on the Big Island. "He helped to save Diamond Head. A lot of parks are here because of him," the younger Wenkam said. Wenkam first came to Honolulu in 1941 as a civil engineer with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. After the war he launched an advertising firm, specializing in architectural photography. He was responsible for all national advertising for the Hawaii Visitors Bureau. He also served as Pacific representative for Friends of the Earth. He was also past president of Western Outdoor Clubs and edited its magazine. In 1980, he told the Maui Rotary Club that he would not publish any more books on Hawaii because they encouraged tourists when too many visitors were a problem. But he felt compelled to snap his camera and capture Hawaii's natural facets. He worked right up until he died, finishing work on a book about Hawaii's tourism founders with Bob Allen. "He was so healthy I don't know what he's doing dead," said a good friend, Leaetta Igoe. Wenkam rented a room from her for the past five years in Hawaii Kai.

"He told me, 'If I get to a point where I'm not active, I'm going to the beach and keep on walking into the ocean,' " Igoe said.

Bonnie Wiley dies at 90. Retired University of Hawaii journalism professor Bonnie Wiley didn't have to use textbook resources, she had pioneering experiences of her own to share. Wiley covered the World War II battle on Iwo Jima, the Japanese surrender aboard the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay and the war crimes arraignment of Gen. Tomokuki Yamashita in Manila. She was the only woman combat correspondent for the Associated Press in the Pacific during World War II. Wiley died Saturday at Arcadia Retirement Residence at the age of 90. "She was kind of modest about it, she didn't boast about the experience," recalled Gerald Kato, a UH associate journalism professor. "It would come up in conversation and you could tell she was proud that she had served. She would tell about how AP offered her the job of Hollywood correspondent and she said that's not for her, she wanted to cover the war." niversity of Hawaii associate professor Beverly Keever said Wiley, whose first newspaper job was in 1927, "was a pioneer for a woman journalist. When she got into it, it was a (male) gendered occupation. She didn't care about the celebrity part, she just really liked journalism." Ah Jook Ku, an Associated Press reporter in 1945 when she met Wiley, said her friend's experiences make up a chapter in a 1989 book, "Women War Correspondents of World War II," by Lilya Wagner. "When she got out of the war, she was tired. She decided she had never studied journalism, and she went back to college to earn her degree," Ku said. Wiley earned a bachelor's degree from the University of Washington, a master's degree from Columbia University and a doctorate in journalism from Southern Illinois University in 1965. She retired in 1975 after 10 years on the UH faculty, but continued as an educator. She helped develop the American Samoa Community College and returned to UH to teach students from China in the Parvin Fellows program. She was 78 when she took a position as editorial adviser with Xinhua News Agency in Beijing. "She said people my age go on cruises, this is my cruise," said retired Star-Bulletin news editor Charles Frankel.

She was given a UNESCO award in 1989 for outstanding contributions to international journalism. In 1985, Wiley was given the George Lucas memorial award for her role in fostering the UH student newspaper. Wiley was born in Portland, Ore., and grew up in Yakima, Wash. She is survived by a niece. Services and burial will be in Yakima. A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. Oct. 20 at the University of Hawaii campus.
