Sqn Ldr Andy Bull RIP

With much sadness, I post that Squadron Leader Andy Bull has passed away, after a courageous fight with cancer.

Andy was crucial to the Poseidon MRA Mk1 programme and a pivotal member of the RAF Seedcorn Project. An excellent instructor, he was a true professional and gentleman; he will be sorely missed.

No details yet of his remembrance, however, they will be posted in due course.

RIP mate.

Andy Bull

Iíve just googled and realised it looks like the Andy Bull that I knew a few years ago. We were on IOT together.

Desperately sad news. RIP.

Terrible news. His diagnosis less than 4 months back. My heartfelt condolences to Abby and the kids. Per Ardua...

It was heartbreaking to learn of Andy's passing. He and I had been friends since high school and our last meeting was by chance in our home town when we were both on leave.

Friendly and down to earth as always he had told me how "the Fin was boring to fly" I looked at him in a way so as to let him know that it is not okay to refer to flying fighter-bombers as boring.

A good friend with a very bright future and will be missed always.
