Wings for Neill Oborne

By Geoff Oborne

My son Neil graduated from the Cathay Pacific flying school in Adelaide and starts his B777 course next week in Hong Kong.

I was lucky enough to present him with his wings.

Also It was great to sit next to Nick Meikle at the graduation dinner and catch up on the past.

 Regards to all


 Geoff obtained his Wings, on November 15, 1976 with 29 PTC (Pilot Training Course)

 Thanks to Geoff for sharing his photographs and memories with ORAFs.

Hi Geoff & hearty congratulations!
A very proud moment, as I know having flown with Rob (middle son) when he was still a F/O in Ryanair, and attended Alistair's (youngest son's) graduation at Flight Training Europe (now an F/O at Cityjet on BAE RJ/146).
Great to see our youngsters doing so well for themselves in these difficult times. Also lovely to see Nick in the second photo, not seen a pic of him in years!
Best wishes to Neill for a long & successful career in flying!
