The tale of the white haired dad-hero, Hal Vaughan, was shared on social media by one of his flight buddies during his bold hauling journey.

According to VT's article, the fellow passenger, Mike Levy, had boarded his Delta flight headed to to Massachusetts from Florida on Christmas Eve and was seated next to Vaughan who shared his tale.

Levy then snapped a pic with Vaughan as well as his flight attendant daughter on duty, Pierce Vaughan, and shared the tale to his Facebook to spread the heart warming tale with the rest of us landbound people.
