I think this thread has gone on long enough. There are some here who, in the cause of controversy or spitefulness, don't care who they insult or upset. A good man is dead. Allow him to rest in peace, and respect his contribution to our nation and its interests.

So many ex soldiers out there!

I never met Nish but spent plenty of time with the B Squadron boys who always talked with great fondness and humour about him. When I heard the news I knew it was him.

It's sad the way he died and even sadder that people have no sympathy for the illness he had or how his family must feel. We all sleep under the blanket of protection provided by EVERY soldier (whatever the cap badge), we should be grateful.

Uncanny is this. Anyone remember the Air Europe skipper who dumped his wife out of a 152 over Wastwater, back in the eighties?

similar thing happened in Sydney in the early eighties.
Guy went up for a joyflight, pulled a knife on the pilot and jumped out of a C172 (I think)

There were many of us in the Falklands and i'd go again in a second even though such actions give rise to the democracy that allows frog spawn like kirsty to go about its business.

Whatever his reasons i'm sure he managed a half series or two on the way down, and in control enuff to avoid people on the gnd.

cheers nish it was amusing jumping with you.

Apologies for the delay in reading the contents of this thread. Some of the other moderators have already made their statements.

I am closiing it for two reasons. One is because it is not what I would classify as a PPRuNe R & N topic and and the other is that there are just too many people who don't have the decency to respect other peoples feelings and are too quick to trash a thread that was being used to express peoples sympathies.
