Mo Remembered

From Brian Seares
Sad news. I knew Mo Sparham very well. I first met Mo 1958. We were ground engineers at Field Aircraft Services (Hunting Clan). The triple bubble hangar was where terminal 4 now is at Heathrow. We worked on Vikings, DC 3, Viscount and DC6-B. We bought the last two DC 6B ever built, NA and NB. At that time Freddie Laker was equipping BUA with Britannia’s and recruiting F/E's. We did the exams and became F/E's .

From Phil Benson : I do remember Mo of course, my condolences to his family.

From Sally Simmonds : Very sorry to hear the news.

From Roger Warren : Yet another BCAL family member passes away, RIP MO

From Marjorie Anglesea Jackson : Condolences to family and friends, RIP Mo.

From William (Bill) Newman.
Such sad news....I remember Mo very well, flying with him in the early DC10 days and latterly on the B747, always a pleasure. A great crew member, always warm and friendly, and I cannot picture him without his engaging smile and infectious giggle. A good man. Sincere condolences to his family and many friends. RIP Mo.
