Smile Casey Reunion

Hi all,

was just talking to a well known former Ag pilot/instructor/engineer who used to work at at Casey. He and some others are in the process of organizing the reunion for later in the year (sept - oct).the location at this stage has not been confirmed. i can confirm that there will Elsa burgers!

To facilitate a date and place that will enable everyone to attend They are looking to get together a list of email contacts of any one who is interested. Its open to people who used to work there, fly there or frequent the place in any other capacity.

If anyone is interested in attending or knows someone who isn't on the internet that used to frequent Casey Airfield and may be interested in attending please PM me your email/contact details and i will pass it on

Keep us informed.

Remember some of us have a roster and need to request days off, so as much notice as possible would be good.

Cheers

will do ! I think the plan is to get an email list together and then workout which which date/place would be best for everyone. In any event i will post details here as they come to hand. A few people expressed interest here but i have no contact details to pass on.

Hi all,


I've only just seen this thread and now wondering how I had missed it!

But to hear that a reunion is on the cards is simply fantabulous!
I was there in the early 90's but had been an acquaintance for over a decade. I started to fly at the new Tooradin - with Alan Baskett (dec.) and Glen and Hugh Balas.


So, count me in ... just gotta revisit the Elsa burger
Ian.

Relax..

‘The report of my death was an exaggeration’

As of 3 minutes ago, Alan was enjoying a holiday with Gwen in Qld; with no intention of quitting and cranky about redactions to his submission. Horsepower through will power.

P9 a.k.a. K9..

Alan Baskett's death!

Romours of my death I am glad to say are incorrect! I am looking forward to putting paid to this rumour soon at the reunion!
Regards all,
Alan

(dec) might mean decadent, perhaps?
JT - please check the notices daily and let me know if ever there is a change in my status.

Greetings

Must admit I donít recall any of your names, but I do hold fond memories of Casey Field.

Trained there in the mid 70ís where Kevin Moore was my QFI.

Finally Bill Campbell Hicks gave me my PPL on October 07, 1976. (C-150 / VH-KQM).

Progressed up to the B55 before seeing the light and swapped to the rotary world and been flying mediums to oil platforms ever since.

Might pop up in November.
