Graham Sussum

I believe he died recently.
We were on the same CFS course and subsequently at 2 FTS together.
Cheers Graham. I remember some very amusing times.

Paul is now at Oxford I believe, still working as a Ground Instructor.
Most of the other Cabair Instructors both part time and full time have moved onto other things.

Sorry can't help you with the other guys as they were before my time.

I'd heard Graham had passed away in 2010, also Jim Champion in more recent times.
I was there in 99.

Bernie cracked me up in class. I can remember him looking down, shaking his head in exasperation at the Dutch guy sat behind me and sighing "Johnny Foreigner."
There was also a middle eastern trainee that kept being back-squaded due exams. He'd been there a year plus by the time we (I was on the course with all the VA cadets) inherited him. Bernie always called him Omar Sharif. All good fun although I'm still trying to forget Cranfield.

I recall Bernie liked to get away early on a Thursday as it was Fish & Chip night at The Crown and he would take 'the old nagger'......

Other names I remember......Paul Golding, Fred (ran a sub post office), Pete Thompson (Radio Nav), Geoff (Systems - left to go to a London university), Chris Smith.

It was 20 years ago but I still get a nervous twitch when I pass J13/14 on the M1
