View Full Version : calling all BMA British Midland LHR staff 1977-1985

4th Sep 2013, 13:24
myself and Andy Cookson worked for BMA on the ground at LHR during this time with a wonderful bunch of young boys and girls

some are here

Andy stayed for the duration to BMI & went on to become LHR station manger then Director of Ground services.
I went to Monarch in 1985 and then other charter airlines...

we spoke last week and thought what a wonderful idea would be to try and get a reunion of many as possible who worked in passenger services, traffic ops, ticket desk and engineering, 1977-1985 the very formative years in Midland's development with its difficult competition with BA on domestic shuttle routes.

(we did not base crew then at LHR but of course anyone who flew into LHR then and remember us bunch would be a delight to see)

Mike Torode from Guernsey who trained many of us

also station managers chris calderbank
Dave Sandford (did he pass away?)
