Reply to John

I guess 'ex-Schreiner'....and slightly 'bush-whacked'...to 'qualify'!

BedakSrewet-Thanks for the updates, sad as the news might be in some cases. I still owed Doc Slager a payback. At an HAI in Las Vegas one year a few of us old Schreiner pilots met up with him. I arrived late and when I walked up to him he seemed not to know me - which, considering our past was hard to reconcile. Then he made a big show of looking behind me and then said "A yes, Rich Lee, the asshole." I have a number of Jan Joore and Janos Batorfi stories. They are most certainly old school legends. Does anyone ever remember having a conversation with Janos where he communicated in only one language? Jan, well, many of his most memorable stories are not suitable for a written forum. I don't have any really great stories about Rinus Both - he always seemed to fly under the radar.

Mr. Nicholson-I am pleased you are still in possession of most of your faculties and, it would seem, extremely knowledgeable concerning the whereabouts of the more entertaining of our fellow reprobates. Real bummer about John. Would like to have met up with him again.

My schedule these days, and internet access, can best be described as random and eclectic, however if I am around on the days a reunion might take place in Big Bear, I would certainly make a serious attempt to attend. Are any possible dates been being considered? Where are you in Oz?

Regardless of our ability to meet in person, when I am next in Phoenix I will scan the HAS Daily Mail back issues and post them for the enjoyment of all. I will even include the bonus issue that got the attention of SAVAK or whatever the secret police were called when our spy radio controller reported them because he thought the articles were real.

Hi Rich

I'm on Gold Coast...send me an email [email protected]
Where are you? Still flying? My last flight was in Balikpapan for IAT in early '79...
funny, I had mates @ high school whose dads had been pilots in WW2...but had not flown since - I thought they were crazy!!!
Any idea where Wayne Hughes is? I last heard of him flying for a SAfrican mob, managed by Aat Slot....subsequently flooged-off to B.A.M.S!
Loved the one about Janos flying into a whiteout up the 42" gasline that ran up to USSR...he was travelling at very low speed & stacked it! It was actually 'my' helo...'his' was u/s...I got a call from Agha Jari Tower..."Capt Batorfi may have some problems!" I asked for details "he said Mayday....what does this mean?" Pierre (My Dear) flew up from Gach Saran, bottle of Vodka for Janos!! He pulled them all out (under v.difficult circumstances)...Janos, still in shorts...a little blue, kissed Pierre...Pierre gave him the vodka, which he sculled on the way bak to AJ!!!

Well, I was going to post a PDF file of the HAS Daily news but it seems I am not able to post attachments. Any ideas?
