RIP John Myers (JR) ex Red Arrows and FRA (Cobham)

Sadly I have heard that John Myers (JR) passed away on the 28th August.

Jonh was instrumental into me getting into flying, He pushed for a flying scholarship at FRA and I was lucky to get the first one. Without his drive and determination in pushing me forward, giving me guidance and motivation when needed I would not be where I am now.

Remember him displaying the Buccaneer Jersey airshow 1978 or 79. Scorching departure and scorching run an break on return

Very sorry to hear the news .I first met John at CASS aviation college in the early eighties on an ATPL course.He was a charming man and we had many a good laugh trying to work out brain teasers from Mike lebretton.He also offered me a job down in Bournemouth for inflight refuelling but I had already started with BAF.Our paths crossed again at le bourget on a night stop and he was still his cheerful self.My sincere condolences to the family.
