My condolences to Ken’s family. An absolute gentleman and a talented aviator that I was privileged to have flown with many times on the 744. Always ready with a smile and banter, he will be missed. God speed Ken.

My condolences to Kens family and friends. He would always help out if anyone needed any sort of assistance and I am inspired by his fight against his cancer for so long.

Ken was a consummate professional and also just a really nice bloke. I had many trips down route from the Fragrant Harbour with Captain Sherwood and enjoyed every one of them. Very sad day.

Very sorry to hear this. Spent many a late night in the old Dakota bar with Ken cooling heels and sorting out the world’s problems. I trust he’s in a far better place now. God speed.

Flew with him on the Jumbo, great guy and excellent captain. I particularly remember his thick scottish accent and sense of humor.
Too soon of course but wishing him well in the eternal skies.

When they teach CRM, they should use Ken as an example of how to be a captain.

When I joined CX 30 years ago, the airline had a reputation for employing some captains who had little regard for concepts such as CRM. Although this rang true for me with some of the captains I flew with, a large number of the “old CX” captains I had the pleasure of flying with were first class blokes. I have nothing but very fond memories of flying with Ken and some other very fine gentleman...Mike Miller for instance.

RIP Ken and Mike.

Ken , a lovely and great guy. Mike Miller also. Both very sadly missed. Halcyon days in old Kai Tak. What a shame.
