I note from my Daily Telegraph on Saturday that Gp Capt (Rtd) Dave Seward, Lightning pilot of note and Stn Cdr Neat at the end of the 70's, has gone to the Great Play Area In The Sky where there are no Strangers and no more 150's crossing behind.  A big man on many levels..... RIP

He was a much-respected (and very well liked) Station Commander at Norfolk's finest. Serving under his command was a privilege and a pleasure - he looked after his people, showed characterful leadership (and retained a brilliant sense of humour). I remember after a particularly low, fast and noisy F4 'beat-up' of the site during a Friday Happy Hour having to relay a 'Message From My Stn Cdr' via Coningsby ATC to the crew....tense pause.....message reads...."not bad for a first-tourist".......priceless.


My sincere condolences to the Seward family and close friends.
