top guy.
Hope he enjoys a well deserved, and hopefully lengthy retirement.
Having known him since around 1980, well before I even thought of joining CX, my thoughts exactly.

Vtwin - Oggie never tolerated fools gladly; is this the reason for your animosity I wonder?

Knew it was coming.
Close, but you have it backwards. Quiet confidence, experience and ability was more of an affront and threat to the man in my case.
That trigger wasn't only limited to your hero. Ask many an experienced new joiner back when the airline could still attract them.

None miss the twisted place a bit.

Quiet confidence, experience AND ability. Jeez. You’re wasted here.

40-50 years at Cathay seems like a life wasted to me. Each to their own I suppose.

Aha, what a fascinatingly modest self-assessment. Far too good to be an SO, FO or even a Line Captain? I can well imagine how he dealt with you. Has it ever occurred to you that you just might, just might, have deserved this?

Yes, deride confidence, experience and ability, you are the perfect CX fit. Modestly or immodestly projected your hero was threatened by it and even had a rep for bullying experienced new joiners before I showed up and he was not alone.

The way I see it, everyone has the right to celebrate the departure in the way they see fit. Too bad some canít handle the brutal honesty of others and admit there is more to this story thatís not being discussed here. Too bad this ill-advised thread was started. This thread is about your hero, if your confident enough in your own assessments, why care what I think and grasp for ways to let the guy off my hook?

IĎm just as happy celebrating alone and have put it off long enough. Good riddance and yet a happy retirement to you; "Sir" and thank you OP for the invite to the retirement party. It was a hoot.

Btw, I left a little something in the punch bowl.

Ciao

Spelling aside, I am guessing you're an absolute legend.

Thanks, fixed it.
Now you can get back to the big retirement party held here on PPRuNe.
You are almost as anal as he was.
Australian maybe?

He had an unshakeably heavy grasp of the irrelevent.
3 hour debriefs, always focused on the obscure, meaningless details.
Zero focus on the big picture, which Keith left in his office when he fired
him from management, there is more to flying than nits, should have
been an auditor, people speaking of not suffering fools-SHEESH
