Gulf Air - Capt Rad Gammage critically ill

Sad news today regarding our colleague and friend Rad Gammage who is critically ill in a hospital in Cyprus. Rad sadly suffered kidney failure as well as multiple heart attacks and is currently in a very serious life threatening state.

Rad has been with Gulf Air for 30 odd years and currently serves as a TRE on the A330/A340 fleet. I'm sure all who know Rad value him both as a highly skilled professional as well as a great down to earth guy.

Please join me in wishing our friend Rad and his wife Ronnie all the best and a speedy recovery.

Cheers Rad, get well soon mate.

I've been in Gulf Air for the last three years. I've flown with Rad a couple of times. Cool guy and very calm all the time. He bought a house in Cyprus for his retirement.
Very sad that he may not be able to enjoy it.
Let's see it as another lesson of life. Stop nagging and live your lives. LIVE them not just waste them.
Hoping for the best for Rad.

Gulf Air is a family (although like most, sometimes a bickering, somewhat disfunctional one). Yet it is always sad when we hear of "one of our own" in bad shape, and heartening when we come together to wish him well.

Although I've never worked before with Rad, my thoughts are with him along with wishes for his full recovery and thoughts with his family.

daidalos, I couldn't agree more.

Dear Captain
Even though we flew only few times together, we are all bound together in trying to make the most and best of our lives. I truly believe that a positive attitude can lead to a positive outcome.

In the face of that famous sense of humor, no illness would
dare stick around.

We are sending you good thoughts! We are all travelers going from one eternity to the next. Sometimes the road is smooth and sometimes it is bumpy. It is always easier to enjoy the time we travel when we travel it with friends.

I treasure your friendship.

I only flew with him once but that was enough to realize what a gentleman he was, I wish him very quick recovery, and hope to fly again in the near future

I will pray for his recovery too. Its so nice to hear of someone so well respected by his peers. I too know of individuals that would definitely fit into that category and it saddens me to hear that he is in trouble now. I don't know the man, never met him, but I already know he is a good man and deserves better.

My thoughts and best wishes go out to him and his family. Believe me, sometimes things can work out even in the darkest moments.
