Lok was the true gentleman, with a unique perspective on the world, a nicer guy you'd struggle to meet. We could do well to learn from his example.

Loved your work big fellah - life's a bitch, eh? I'll have a Talisker or 3 for you mate...

He never took life to serious, was one of the finest aviators I have ever flown with and truly a bright light in my life.
The light has gone but his memory will burn forever.
Miss you my friend.

I was very sad to hear of Lockies passing. Somehow I always thought that I would get to see his smiling face again.

Lockie was a great friend and a terrific guy to fly with. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and also the crew at Impulse.

"Kaloo Kalay" Lockie - you know I never really worked that one out.

by Lewis Carrol

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves

Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,

And the mome raths outgrave.

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!

The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jujub bird, and shun

The frumious Bandersnatch!"

He took his vorpal sword in hand:

Long time the manxome foe he sought --
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,

And stood awhile in thought

And as in uffish thought he stood,

The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,

And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! and through and through

The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head

He went galumphing back.

"And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?

Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"

He chortled in his joy.

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves

Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,

And the mome raths outgrave.

"... It seems to fill my head with ideas -- only I don't know exactly what they are."
Alice in;
Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There.

Lockie must have been wonderful fun, to with be.

Only knew Loki for a short while but what a top bloke, ditto to all that's been said on this thread already. He will be remembered by all as a great pilot and a mate.

Sorry to hear about your mates.

What happened to Scot Robinson?

12th Dec 2002, 09:01
So sorry to hear about Lok. I can only agree with all of the previous posts regarding the great man. He was a joy to work with, and a joy to be out with.

In answer to your question Capt Vegemite, Scott Robinson was tragically killed earlier this year in a motorcycle accident.

Another one taken from us so early in life.

There will be a 717 flyby at around 12:30, on its way through to Syd.

On his first day as Captain, he instructed the crew that he must only be answered with "Aye Aye Captain", which they all did for the rest of the day :D :D

Condolences to the family.

Bye, bye, Lockie! You were one in a million and I will miss you mate! Cheers!

I heard of the loss of Lok form our lives last week and only saw this thread today and thought how fantastic it was. Lok has always been a friend of ours for 12 years or more and was always welcome through our door. Although I never flew with Lok we did spend 2 years together in the same company and will always remember Friday nights at the Old Lion in North Adelaide as I am sure a few others will.

It is a great tribute to Lok that people whose lives he touched are placing posts of this nature in his memory.

It is very pleasing that Lok did at least achieve a career goal of sitting in the LHS of a jet aircraft something that most pilots desire to achieve.

Lok, I couldn't even have a drink for you last night because of aviating duties but I certainly will have a tipple or two tonight.

You will forever be in our memories and your cryptic talk surely missed.

Our condolences to his parents, Mike & Chell and his nephews, we have been thinking of you during this unfortunate time.

All the best mate from all whose lives you have touched.

Brenton, Cherie Tomas & Tara.

Boofy181 or anyone from aircharter, adelaide in early nineties could you please contact me if possible?

Condolences to the Male family.

Lok I thought of you on Anzac day this year and the last time we paid respects to the fallen. I'll have a quiet OP. Go the Wallabies.RIP mate.

I was saddened to hear about Lockieís passing.

I can remember all too vividly being told about his condition, as I recall it was only a couple of weeks after Scottís Death. I was still in shock, and the news of Lockies illness made me feel even more sick to the stomach and I prayed that he would pull through.

I would liked to have attended the funeral, and in a sense to represent Scott, however I only found out about Lockieís death on Saturday. (Donít really get to hear about any Impulse goings on anymore, I am a bit isolated from that part of my former life)

My sincere condolences to his family.

No one deserves to go through the hell of losing a loved one, (and even if you know it is a possibility I donít think you can ever be prepared for it.)

To everyone else take care over the holidays, I donít want to hear anymore bad news. For you fortunate people who still get ID travel take advantage of it and stay off the roads or at least out of the way of the idiots out there.

To Big Dog : Give me your new contact details, (I canít call you back if you donít leave your number, and I know you have moved), you can email me if you like on
