Thumbs up Eric Thurston

for those who know him Eric will celebrate his 100th birthday at Stapleford on 22 August 2019
still going strong and, as always, a gentleman!
worked for Eric for many years - right from the early days and sad to hear Pete Smith no longer with us.
as I recall Apache G-ASMY was the first twin but the fleet grew and changed - no idea how many pilots gained their CPL and I/R with him but it was and is many thousands
Eric is not only a gentleman but also a very good friend - 10 years ago he drove over 100 miles to attend my wife and my Golden Wedding Party - stayed to the end and all present still regard him as a great gentleman. He is just that.
