Kevin Harte RIP

Iíve had the sad news that Kevin Harte passed away yesterday (May 5th). Many of you will remember Kevin from his RAF time as a Navigator on Javelins and Phantoms. Kevin was a stalwart air defender who went on to use his QWI knowledge at STCAAME and in CTTO/AWC before building the company flying organisation at QinetiQ.
He was a fine man and I had the good fortune to work for him twice Ė once in the RAF and once in the private sector. He will be greatly missed.
Funeral arrangements are not yet in hand, but If you wish to attend please PM me and I will pass you details.

Had the pleasure of working for him at CTTO Boscombe Down 90-93. Stood out as a good guy amongst some lesser individuals. RIP.

Thanks for letting us know, Big V. Very sad indeed. What a professional and a true gent. I remember him from F4 days and I worked with him at the AWC (as it had become) at Boscombe. A very sad loss. My thoughts to family and friends. RIP, Kevin.
