      Well said Wycliffe.
      As you say Bob did so much for flight simulation in the UK, he will be sadly missed.

      Thank you Wycliffe for producing this and well said. Shouldn't be forgotten that Bob I think was the initiator of flight sim shows in the UK at the Birmingham Motor Cycle museum. And it was a great event. I always found him so helpful on the few occasions I contacted him by phone. As you say, a giant in the FS community and will be missed.
