The great Dave Stock. Thanks for posting a Notice for him. I would have sworn he would never die in an aircraft, but all the nasties lined up against him that day. I was privileged to fly with him quite a lot and cannot see a Lightning or Hunter, or that blue and white Mirage F1 at Swartkops (which he wanted to own) without thinking of him. RIP
