Sad news to report that Bill Symonds the well respected Mobil refueller from Derby passed away this week after suffering a heart attack while at work at Derby airport.
He has helped many people out in the past, he was always a welcome sight 3am in the morning after coming back from a long day. Many people in the north west (from Darwin to Meeka) would not realise the important assistance he provided in getting RFDS aircraft refuelled to evacuate people from remote areas, any time of the day, 365/24/7.
He will be well missed.
P.S. Bill who are they going to ring now to work out where to get one of those jet refuel nozzles to rotate ?
