Ken Newman

Hi Gordon,

I flew G- Cars during the period of your book .I recognise many of the faces and names on your blog.
It is interesting to read your side of the story - i still have my ELT (for pilots only)
Ken Newman was a great friend of mine - you will remember him. He was killed in a Alo 3 crash near Port Elizabeth during 1999.I flew the rescue mission but only manage to rescue his tech Mike Bottom and the passenger.Our friendship was forged during those days during the Rhodesian War.
I loved wearing those t-shirts,shorts and fellies much more comfortable than the baby grows we are forced to wear to-day.

I want a copy of your book
