Vale Keith Black

Sadly just received news that Keith Black ex Kiap and long serving pilot in PNG passed away yesterday.

So many fond memories.

RIP Blackie

Yet another victim of the ill-fated PX flat on McGregor Street. His life cut short, much like PH before him 😢

An absolute Legend, Gentleman and a totally larger than life character. Very sad to hear this but glad I have so many great memories of the adventures with Blackie in PNG.

The good old days of operating from the Duck in the Twin Otters 🤡

The days of quaking the Duck whilst going into Sydney are long gone.

Then came the great days flying the Dash with PX, RIP Keith and your legacy will live on forever with PNG pilots.
