Alastair Pugh
Sadly I have just heard that Alastair Pugh, former Managing Director and Executive Vice-Chairman of British Caledonian Airways, has passed away. My sincere condolences go out to his family, many friends and colleagues at this difficult time.

Alastair collapsed at home after a day out racing his classic car last weekend and passed on 6th March 2019, in East Surrey Hospital. He was 90 years old. I had met Alastair a few times over the years, a great source of advice and friend to the site. He also helped with the book and kindly wrote the foreword for it.

He had an indomitable spirit, and I felt that not much would stand in his way. Thanksgiving Service details here Alastair Remembered
