I didn't know Dart Herald, he might have left when I was there, I know Paul Timms retired in 2017, And Malcolm? (I forgot his name now, but I know his face, but he's been a Flybe since it started) was still there.

I think you mean "Norman" who's been there forever.

I was there when they were looking after the Dart Heralds and F27s for Channel Express as well as their own fleet of 146s, that would have been around 1996 - 1998.
People I remember are Pete Mankalo (probably spelt that incorrectly!), Dougie Butland and Adrian Webb, the name Paul Timms rings a bell.
Anyway, I hope the guys that were working there find jobs, as I mentioned earlier FAS had a good reputation within the industry so hopefully something should appear in the not too distant future.

Unfortunately Dougie Butland died about 10 years ago. He never fully recovered after being knocked off his motorbike in 2007.

Thats sad to hear Dixi, I had heard that Dougie had a bike accident but I never knew that he had passed away.
