Just brought Tommy Docherty home from BGI after a cruise.
Perfect gentleman and chatty.

Presumably Lindsay Lohan would not be on your favourite list judging from her behaviour at Tampa.

Back in 1999 I was lucky enough to be in two films (flying a helicopter), the first one was with Owen Wilson who was a really nice chap, funny unassuming and he even lent us his driver when we went out one night. Gene Hackman was also in the film (taller than I imagined) and after watching "The Quick and the Dead" on Slovak telly (all dubbed), I stood next to him in the dinner que the next day and remarked how good his Slovakian was, he laughed and said he'd seen himself speak Japanese aswell and didn't realise how good he was, really nice chap too.
The other film we did was with Brad Pitt and Robert Redford (didn't get to meet Mr. Redford), Mr. Pitt was an @rse, ignored everyone. The director was fun and a really good bloke and went by the name of Tony Scott! He even let me look through the camera to judge a shot we were in!
A friend of mine flew Right said Fred and said they were a barrel of laughs and really nice blokes too.

Newforest2, did you read the story in your link? Seems like the author sided with Lindsey L and I'm not surprised. LL didn't get what she paid for.

Hi Sepp, how did you manage to wrangle that? Were you the pilot?

Anyone ever flown Johnny Rotten a.k.a. John Lydon of Sex Pistols fame? What's he like?

had Jamie Cullum onboard a few days ago. Really polite, unassuming young man. He sat quietly playing a computer game looking like your average 15 year old!!!!

John Lydon

Believe John Lydon was forced to travel separately form the rest of the band on the Sex Pistols' tour last year after Icejet refused to carry him after he continued to smoke on the aircraft and threatened the crew !(allegedly !)

Once had a first class cabin full of Bollywood stars
I'm pax, not CC, but had a similar experience, with two very good looking young indian guys in 1A and B and me across the aisle in the middle.

Loads of young girls came to the cabin (before departure) for their autographs and I ended up acted as photographer for most.

I have no idea who the actors were (the crew said they were very famous), but they behaved like complete gentlemen, signing autographs and talking with their fans, even being kind enough to thank me for helping.

They were the kind of people you's like to share the cabin with anytime

Prince Edward - Despite all the security was quite a nice man. Wasn't allowed to say much to him though!

Christie Hinze - Stood up in business class on the 744 in pyjamas and flicked her hair like in all the shampoo ads. Every guy's head turned... truly beautiful lady. Very nice and friendly too.

Major General Michael Jeffery as Governor General. Ended up seated next to him... very nice man. Worked for the entire flight from London to Singapore!

What A Mariah

Mariah Carey heading to LHR, on the way to CPT. She was adorable! One of our Irish crew couldn't pronounce Mariah and instead called her Marijah... She thought this was hysterical and remedied this by saying,
"Call me MC..."

At the end of the flight she signed autographs for everyone and was nothing but polite. No diva strops, no tantrums, just a really sweet person.

Emma Thompson, what a legend! She was the nicest, smiliest person you could meet. Incredibly polite, not a scrap of make-up and utterly gorgeous.

I have a confession here.

This is my first post after a few yrs lurking so here goes...

I'm a youngish FO on my first LH gigs. My all time idol/hero/god was on my flight to LAX a few weeks ago and I have to admit to being ridiculously besotten.

None other than the great, incomparable, wonderful genuis guitarist David Gilmour of Pink Floyd, who has created the soundtrack to my life.

He has a CPL which astonished me and we talked for a fair old time about flying and when we landed I took him up front and showed him around. Very knowledgable. He owns a P51 Mustang too. WOW! I did drop hints, but....

What a lovely, softly spoken, genuine guy.

Vs Toga

I did a few of the PF tour flights.

They are the nicest guys in show business.

I went to a after show party with them in Athens, (one of them has / had a house there), and it was life a family renunion. Great time.

DG loved flyiong, and If I remember titled a track on an LP LEARNING TO FLY.

Michael Wennick was his initial instructor, also a very nice guy.

I was not a CC nor pax in that flight but i had the oportunity to organize as a broker the flight for the entire argentinian soccer team. I had players like messi, kun aguero, heinze, gago and others and Maradona was the coach. They are all very friendly but they dont like being disturbed.

Dave Gilmour apparently used to own an airworthy Gnat if I remember right. G-MOUR? Wonder what happened to that.

Great guitarist, although I think it was more Roger Waters that wrote the soundtrack to mine.

Gilmour cont'd


I did get his business card (autographed, naturally)- his management co is called Emca. Acme spelt backwards, which amused me. No mobile number on it though.

He was actually quite fascinated with side stick controls- had never seen them live- wanted to know about 'feel'. I said it's simple- there is none, but you get used to it!

Here's G-MOUR- as you say it's the Gnat....does he still own it?

I believe he's also done some hours with the human legend Brendan O'Brien.

As an aside, and re minor celebs, for English posters, I had Jeremy Paxman on recently (to EWR- wise man), who again, according to the crew, was a total gent and very funny.
