Capt Tim Lancaster

Just wondering what happened to the BA BAC1-11 pilot who got sucked out of the a/c when the window blew out? Just watched National Geographic program about it. Seem to remember he went to Easyjet after retiring from BA, but somewhere Imay have heard he'd passed on. Can anyone enlighten me?

I recall speaking with Tim on a number of occasions and he sent me his CV, it made interesting reading, the gentleman certainly has a sense of humour

I was privilaged to fly with Tim on a number of occaisions to help make him familiar with his purchase. The Auster auotocar. Quite an anusual model, though I thought I saw it featuring in the AAIB publication a while back something about Auster comming into contact with post built by Boeing whilst landing. A very nice chap to fly with I must say.

A fantastic fellow our Tim

Only flew witrh Tim when he was an F/O on 747 classics. Great bloke and a very lucky (or unlucky if you like) chap. Last spoke to him outside Concorde house LGW about a year ago - it was like the last 15 years were a day ago - until when I got home I looked in the mirror.

Tim Lancaster is alive and well - retired from easyJet and enjoying flying a Tiger Moth in the UK, and a retirement home in Spain. Rumours of his passing are exaggerated...

I can confirm he is alive and well, I met him by chance at a school reunion dinner earlier this year, although he is quite a few years older than me and left our school some years before I joined. Really nice chap, very friendly and approachable and a very gregarious character.

Last I heard the FO was on the B747-400 fleet but that was nearly twenty years ago, probably a senior skipper by now.

He certainly was a 744 Captain a few years back but I suspect he may have retired by now.

FO was Alistair Atchison. Officer, Gentleman & proved to be a worthy pilot in circumstances we never train for. Last I heard was that he was with J2 outa LBA having retired from BA.

Message to Doors to Automatic

I'm trying to get in touch with Captain Tim Lancaster for a Japanese TV production company who would like to do an interview with him about his amazing experience back in 1990. In your message you said you met him at a school reunion earlier this year. Would you be able to contact him for us and see if he might be willing to be interviewed for the Japanese TV programme?
I'd be most grateful if you could reply to this. On receipt of your reply I'll give you my contact details.
Thanks a lot.
Japanese Jim

Japanese Jim, if you PM me I will give you a contact for the Old Boys Association at our school who I am sure will be able to pass your message on to him.

FO was Alistair Atchison. . . . . . . . . . . . Last I heard was that he was with Jet 2 out of LBA having retired from BA.
Alastair Atchison (he spells his name the unusual way !) did retire from BA at age 55, as everyone did in those days ! Yes, still flying as a Jet.2 skipper, but based at EGCC, not Leeds.
