Mark was a good friend, my daughter and I did many sorties with him on the various boats he operated in Durban.
Very shocking news.

Met him when he was an ops controller at Phoenix Airways, and then Sun Air afterwards. What an untimely passing just as he had got married, and had won an aircraft in the raffle recently too.

RIP Mark. He was an active contributor to the forum. And yes, very sad after just being married. Condolences to his new wife and his family.

The hangar in the sky is richer for his passing. Fly high on Silver Wings.
