To all readers:
I am sad to relate that WALLY GIBSON a/c engineer extra-ordinary has passed away. Wally will be remembered simply and purely as a one-off Mr Fix-it. Even thousands of miles from Base and armed only with tool box and the contents of the aircraft hold, Wally was a magician at keeping aircraft flying. Wally's time with Ace Freighters (Constellations) and TMAC (DC-7's and CL44's) was legendary and without a doubt, the world is poorer at his passing.
Anyone wishing to attend his funeral, please do contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
