Charlie Newble  Aircraft Engineer
Sadly we learn that Charlie passed away in early December 2019. My sincere condolences to his family, friends and former colleagues. Charlie, an aircraft engineer, joined Transair in 1960 and retired from BA in 2002.

Charlie helped out at the Tangmere Museum after his retirement, working on the aircraft there to "keep his hand in" as he put it.

Charlie's service was held on 10th January 2020 at the Surrey & Sussex Crematorium.
