http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-norfolk-23952207 A great man who I had the privilage of talking to a few years ago at the Martlesham Heath Control Tower open day. He even posed for a photo holding one of my BoB Pilots VAM's. So sad but at 97 he had a great eventful life which he lived to the full.

Just been reading the BBC page - very sad that he's passed away but what a top bloke! James Bond stuntman and he did aerial searches for Lord Lucan and the Loch Ness monster!
I like the picture of him with the pilot AM! I wonder how many other celebrities would do that for their fans?
