Venkat Lakshman Reddy RIP

It is with great sadness we learned today that Venkat Lakshman Reddy, ex GF and BDF (among others), has flown for better skies.

A true gentlemen.

All our condolences to his wife and family.

Very sad to hear this - my sincerest condolences to his family. Many happy memories of 737 Line Training with Lakshman in GF. A gentleman and an excellent Trainer. RIP.

Very sad start to my day. I did a short stint with GF and Lach did much of my refresher training. He even tried to get me to stay. Forgiving but fair examiner and quiet, knowledgeable Trainer. Total Officer & Gentleman . High value away from planes too. RIP, Sir.

Close Colleague of mine, ExPpruner 'Gordomac' has been expelled from this site but asks to mention his 17 year association with "Lach". Gmac is greatly saddened by this news and wishes "Prithi" and other family members heartfelt condolences Any email or address info for Prithi would be warmly appreciated by Gmac. .

Slowjet, thanks for the call and me too, confirming the news on here has me devastated. Of course we are all headed towards the common destination but some folk, you hope, will just be around forever. "Lach" was one such.

On joining GF, Captain Reddy did my final Sim Check and in the debrief, sat down, looked over the paperwork, eye-balled me and said " You'll do " and off we went to share a beer beside the pool at the Doha Sheriton. A very, very, special Officer. A very peaceful person indeed and now, time to rest in that peace.
