RIP Bob Ilsley

If any you guys from KZN knew Bob Ilsley, he sadly passed away on the 16/4/2013, after a long battle with cancer.

I have known Bob and his son Stuart since 1998. Bob's passion for flying was infectious!

I was always amazed how fit Bob was for his age. The attached photos are from the 2010 Maragte EAA fly-in. Bob was already in his early 80's when I took these photos.
