RIP Dr Bob

Postby Mayfly » Wed Feb 03, 2021 2:40 pm

Sadly Dr Robert Pleming passed away yesterday at home.

Whatever peoples opinions are of how things ended up or how they were run, I can with hand on heart say that I know of no-one who could have achieved what Robert did. It was down to his tenacity and sheer stubbornness that 558 flew again.

Condolences to his wife.

RIP Dr Bob. ... sky-trust/
In memory of a very dear friend - Mike Pearson

Very fond memories of Robbie Gilvary - DTs 1st Vulcan Captain who taught DT all he knew.

One Olympus 301 has twice the power of a complete F1 starting grid.
XM655 has four of them, all serviceable.
