Sam Remembered

From Eddie Taylor
One of Nature's true gentleman. I have wonderful memories of Sam Small and have often thought of him over the years. In particular, back in the late sixties when we operated a Cally charter flight to Bermuda. I stayed with a mate who was based at BDA with Qantas (I was an ex QF Steward).

On the evening of our first day there I will never forget a launch arriving at the pier of the house of my mate's place, sirens sounding, lights flashing and the crew of our 707 in full swing. Rosie Mason was my No. 2. What a night we had. Two days later we flew empty to JFK and laughed and joked of our experience, at McCann's Bar. Rest in Peace Captain Sam Small. My heartfelt sympathy to his family.

If you would like to leave a message in remembrance please drop me a line anytime
