Keith Meggs

Anyone know anything of Keith Meggs, decorated RAAF pilot, Air Traffic Controller, most relaxed and casual GA pilot and later author? Keith would have to be about 90 yrs old by now.

Keith came to an RVAC Dawn Patrol event only a few years ago and gave an incredible talk about his flying in the Korean War, he had some fascinating stories. He doesn't live far from Moorabbin and still loves talking aviation with anyone and everyone. Shouldn't be long from finishing that book of his if he hasn't finished it already.

I remember visiting Keith about 20 years ago at his house at Gardenvale near Brighton. I marvelled at the wall to wall book shelves in his lounge room and the hundreds of aviation books. At the time I was looking for a particular aviation magazine that he might have. We climbed a ladder into his loft and I was astonished to see rows upon rows of aviation magazines including the issue I had hoped to find. His house was a veritable treasure trove of aviation history.
