Stack Butterley

John 'Stack' was a neighbour of mine in Dorset and took me on Concorde on my ATC jolly back in '91.
I know he went to CityFlyer after BA and he left Dorset to live near Portsmouth I think - his home town.
It would be good to know if he is 'still on the perch"!
Thanks B48N.

Frightened me to death, when I lent him Tiger Moth. Pretended not to be able to land it at Compton Abbas & stopped about 6 feet from the end. Fun day, fun guy.

Great guy... made my ATR groundschool tolerable... "I don't give a T*** said the pilot, merry merry men are we..." still rings in my ears occasionally... last heard he was flying a Tiger a few weeks ago...

Sadly Stack passed away on Sunday whilst airborne in his Tiger Moth. His friend, who was flying with him, was able to bring them down safely at the airstrip where they are based.

Yes, very sad, but what a lovely way to go.

Flew with Stack many times in the seventies on the Trident, quite often used to pick him up in Camberley on the way to LHR.
Allways fun to fly with, totally relaxed, but a very sharp operator.
A fitting end to a bonafide Legend.
