Richard Havers 03/01/2018
Sadly I have heard that Richard passed away on the 31st December 2017 after a short battle with cancer which was diagnosed when very advanced. My sincere condolences go out to his family, friends and former colleagues at this difficult time, he will be missed by many.  Richard joined BUA in 1969 as a messenger in cargo sales working up the line in Cargo Sales and then to Planning. He was part of the setting up of British Caledonian Commuter, which he recalled "was great fun". After BCal he went to Continental Airlines before returning to the UK to write books, one being Inflight Confidential.  Service details and remebrances here  Richard Remembered
