We want to take a moment to wish a former member of Newswatch 16 a very happy 80th birthday.

Jack Ruland was the station's pilot back in 1979 and operated Skycam 16 until 1999 when he retired.

During that time, Jack estimates that he flew over 8,500 hours for WNEP.  Prior to his career at Newswatch 16, he had a successful aviation career with the Navy.

Newswatch 16 wishes him all the best today and hopes he enjoys many, many more birthdays.
