RIP Peter Brown

Post by CJS »

Can't see this anywhere else, apologies if I've missed it. Taken from the Sally B Facebook page - sad news indeed:

RIP Peter Brown BEM

The close-knit Sally B family was deeply saddened by the news of the death of Chief Engineer for forty plus years, Peter Brown, who died on the 10th of June following a short illness.

Peters contribution to the aircraft and the Sally B organisation is second to none. His inspiration, engineering knowledge and tenacity have kept our B-17 flying for more than four decades; our aircraft could not have had a better ambassador, nor indeed could it be better represented.

A brilliant and warm person, engineer and team leader, he will remain in our hearts for as long as we live - he will be sorely missed.
With just the slightest bit of finesse, I might have made a little less mess.

A fine achievement to be part of a team that has kept this remarkable machine flying for 40 years. He will be missed.
