Bob Kelly's 21.8.99 letter reads:
“Sadly I have to report that another member of my crew has died.
My navigator, William (Tim) Greenup passed away early this year. Tim had lived at Longmont, Colorado, USA for many years where he had been a senior Air Traffic Controller at Denver Airport prior to his retirement.
In mid 1987 my wife Gwen and I visited Tim and his family, shortly after he retired. He gave us a conducted tour of the ATC section of the busy airport, and it was obvious that he had been a much loved staff member.
With Tim Greenup's passing, that just leaves Chris and me, because my other WAG, Kevin Blanch, who lived at Nelsons Bay, died on 8th September, 1997.”
