Group Captain Phil Champniss AFC OBE - info

Phil was involved with 3 Sqn Harriers and then went on to manage BAe interests in SA.

Living on the island of Minorca, I understand he's not so well so I thought I'd mention it here for info.

Please PM me if I can be of help off-line.

Cloud,
I was On No 8 Squadron when Phil was there as Boss of No 43 Squadron. My Boss on 8 was Tammy Syme; who lives in Florida, and is also very poorly. Sad times.

Very sad. Among his other notable achievements, a true icon of the RAF Hunter Force, well remembered. RIP Phil.

An outstanding BM, GM and CX in KSA. They don't make guys like him anymore - more's the pity. RIP Sir.
