It is with great sadness that we have to report that Capt Arthur Ricketts passed away suddenly on Thursday 5th December 2019 aged 81. Arthur was always a keen supporter of this website and became a personal friend. He later introduced me to the EAA brethren at the Reunions and was always interested in anything to do with East African or his favourite aeroplane – the Super VC10. He was a family man and enthusiastic pilot to the end. Supported by his wife Marjorie and long after he retired from EAA and British Aerospace, he continued his flying with Cessnas in the UK and floatplanes on Lake Garda.
Our thoughts are with Marjorie and the family.
