In a fundraising effort to help Japan since the country was devastated by an earthquake and tsunami recently, Hawaiian Airlines', pilot Capt. Rick Baldwin raised $9,500, with the airline's union topping the amount up by $5,000.
This follows past fund raising endeavours by airline members who raised $15,000 in 2009 for victims of the typhoons which hit the Philippines and Indonesia.
