Sad news. One of the 'greats', and a gentleman by all accounts.

RIP

Dave

Unfortunatley never had the chance to meet Rall but from all accounts seemed to be quite the gentlemen.

Like every WW2 veteran who passes on a daily basis a sad event.

He is wheels up for the last time.

When I heard the sad news, I felt immediately empty, sad and lonely. The world of aviation has become a lot poorer now.
