Yeah, flight engineers included too!!

Sorry should've said flight deck crew, the flight engineers are just as important as the pilots

Julian Bond still is at MyTravel or was, as a training manager.

Alan Carter is with Thomsonfly on the 737, out of Doncaster I think. Did fly Cargo for a while in the Far East for Korean Air on the 744.

Anyone know where Ian Lawrie and Euan McLean are now from the F100 vid? Both seemed like nice guys. I heard that Euan might be at BA and Ian still at bmi, can anyone confirm?

This is correct. He is now a Captain with Virgin on the 747-400.

Why would one move from the 747 with virgin to the 737 with thompson? Is this not a move for the worse?

I also believe all the concorde crew have now retired with Captain Les Broadie running his own flying school?!!?
Les Brodie has retired and is a flying instructor, although not at his own school. The paint job is the same as his previous employer though......

Looks like John Cullom from the VS 744 video has tragically had his flying career cut short (assuming it's the same John Cullom).
Yes, the same John Cullom.
Bear in mind that the link gives only one side of the story, but it's academic now and the least said the better.
John died at the end of last year.

He'd moved to South Africa a few years ago, while on (very) prolonged paid sick leave from Virgin because of 'back problems', and drowned near his home at Camps Bay, Cape Town.
It's not known what happened, but his friends in SA think he must have gone onto some rocks at night to watch one of the unusually powerful storms they were having at the time and been swept into the sea.

(Just in case my username gives a misleading impression - I knew John personally, not professionally. I wasn't involved in any way in his claim against Virgin, either professionally or informally, although I knew he'd made it.)

That is real bad what happened to John!

I have been in contact with Alan Bonnick, and he is now a Flight Instructor at a Training School.

I don't know, but I can understand why you might move from Korean to Thomsonfly.

R I P John Cullom, It just shows that Life can 'throw' anything at you.

A tragic end to a professional career and more importantly life.

Regards.

It was really interesting and quite moving reading this thread.When watching these products I suppose that it is normal to see these crew members 'frozen' in time which of course isn't so.I would like to pass on my best wishes to them all for a secure and safe career.Very sad about John Cullom.EricT

Julian Bond is now 'Airbus Chief Training Captain' or some similar title at the Alteon simulator facility at Cheadle near Manchester.

What a great series of vids!
Most memorable moment was watching Julian Bond giving Sanford Approach a b0ll0cking for a TCAS resolution! The way he 'put it across' was very professional..not easy with cameras in your beak!
Sorry to hear about John.....

Yes I have the Video 2, It was funny when MAN atc called out 'Kestrel Britannia' and no one replied for a minute, and then Mr Bond said to Mr Haley the NPF In all these years I haven't heard the callsign 'Kestrel Britannia'!! He said it, then carried on with the taxi to 24R.

Mr Bond has an extensive amount of flying experience, I should think he is ideal for the post as Airbus Chief Training Pilot.


Regards.

'Thomson Tui Britannia'...

The 330 vid is one of my favourites too; Julian Bond seems quite a character and was a very entertaining presenter. The bit which always makes me laugh is when he accidentally drops his pen on the floor at the end departure brief, he says to F/O Haley "My pens on the floor, any questions?

They were a really good set of vids.
