    I know none of them, which makes no difference at all ...

    Condolences to all the families. Life can be very unfair sometimes ... this was, sadly, one of those occasions.

    RIP.
     
  12. So sad to hear the news, and it always happens around this family time.

    I also flew with Si for a brief time in 655 Sqn before he left the Army; he was a huge character and a thoroughly professional aviator.

    I cracked my favourite bottle of wine and drank to what must have been a very full life. Condolences to all of the families involved, I can't imagine what they must be going through.

  13. And so the numbers of those who who go VMC on top increase yet again. Si was a great fella and lived life to the max, he will be very sadly missed by many, none more so than his family. God speed old mate and rest peacefully, you'll never be forgotten. :cry:
     
  14. Rest in Peace Si.
