Dickie who worked alongside Ken Gay and Joe Hickey in the Airtours catering office for many years before transferring to Caledonian passed away on Monday.  Another of the backroom boys who helped make Airtours the great company it was. Quietly spoken yet with a very dry sense of humour he was my neighbour for many years. RIP mate.  I will forward the funeral arragements

SAD NEWS ~ Steve Reed

This is sad news indeed folks, Steve Reed from Engineering passed away last Friday, 15th December.
Those of you who knew Steve will always remember him as very proud ex-Fleet Air Arm man, a good engineer, having a wicked sense of humour, never afraid to express his opinion and of course a fine head of hair, that being the envy of many (he kept it to the end). In other words a fine chap and a good friend to many of us.
