Contact friendsSubscriber Scott Barham in the United Kingdom sends the following request:

I am hoping you maybe able to assist me in locating a former CP Air/Canadian airlines colleague ‘George McBurnie’.

I am a friend of his from the UK and we used to correspond for many years but unfortunately we lost touch quite some years ago and I would like to see if George is still around.

He used to be the editor of the Canadian Airlines in house newsletter and lived in Point Roberts, Washington State but worked at the Vancouver airport.

I am writing to you as I note his name is mentioned on one of your newsletters.

Any assistance you can give in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

After reading the NetLetter #1456, Doug Davidson shared this memory -

The story by Roddy McPhee brought back memories. I knew Roddy quite well and made a point of speaking to him every time I flew out of Prestwick.

My mum was at Glasgow airport, flying out on a parent pass. She had checked in and was sitting with my brother waiting to go through security when she felt very unwell and realized she was having a heart attack. Roddy was wonderful and swung into action.

Mum was in intensive care in the Paisley hospital before the aircraft pushed back. I sent a heart-felt thank you to Roddy and got a very gracious reply. Mum lived another ten years but never did make another trip out. Roddy was a star.

Best regards,
