That's very sad news. He was a great character on 101 in the late sixties. In November 1977 he kindly let my son (then 8 years old) stay on the flight deck into Columbo on our end of tour flight from Hong Kong to Brize, A very fine operator.

My QFI on the Varsity at Oakington during the Winter 70 to 71, and I remember him as a good bloke.

Mind you I seem to remember the mess bar a lot more than the flying!
