Not sure if you are interested in employees before your time there ( c '64 - '66 ) .. operations from Townsite .. Beech 18's, Twin Bonanzas (!) etc .. I was a T/O , went on to fly in the North West ..last 30 yrs in UK .. met Eddie's old secretary last time in Aust ( lives nr mum in Tweed Heads ) many happy memories .. recall names and happy times in the days when we were 'learning to fly' and 'working for Eddie'
I picked up an book on meterology for glider pilots, in a second hand bookshop in Queenscliff. Inside the cover is a message to Mary Connellan. I often wondered if there was a connection to the Connellan family.
