I first met Tom 63 years ago when I joined Field Aircraft Services at London Airport as it was then known. It was the engineering division of Hunting-Clan. Tom started his F/e career on DC-6 a year before me. We progressed through Britanniaís, B707, DC-10 and B747. I know he knew Dave's father (Ron Thaxter) as I did.

RIP Tom. He was one of 3 Flight Engineers who interviewed me for the 707 when I joined BCAL . After what seemed like a long time of general and tech questions Tom asked if I drank! After careful consideration, I said it was known, at which point Tom said 'OK let's go to the pub for lunch'. He called me the next day to give me the job. Thanks Tom for the job and a great deal of support through the years.

From Jerry Ball
Tom was a real character! I first met Tom when I started at BCAL & occasionally on DC10s when I was on a trip with my Dad (Vic Ball Flight Engineer). Tom always had time to chat especially about planes.

I think that the number of tributes speak for themselves.  A well loved and respected man has been lost to us all.  Always a pleasure to be in your company Tom. You will be sorely missed.  RIP.

From Neil Morrison
Very sorry to learn of the  death of Tom. He is very well remembered from the days when  the Crewing office was basically a corridor in the Horley offices.  A very forceful personality when having a word with Reg Farrell re the Crew programme. A man with a mission to  improve things. Happy landings Tom.

From Hugh Cowan
I remember the day that Tom walked into the Caledonian office at PIK. The room lit up and he was immediately the life and soul of the party - not that there was a party but Tom made it feel like there was one! From the number of remembrances comments you can tell that Tom was a much loved professional. He truly lived respected and died regretted.

From Lyndsey Walker
So sad to see this notice about Tom. A trip to Mexico with him mid 70ís never to be forgotten. He Ďsaved Ď me from a drunken Mexican in Plaza Garibaldi ending up with his 2 front teeth being eliminated totally by this guy with a knuckle duster! Every reunion he was at, he would point at me first and weíd laugh about it, but at the time I had some explaining to do back at LGW to his family on our return . A great guy with a Fantastic sense of humour. RIP dear Tom.

From Jim Wilson: My sincere condolences, RIP Tom.
