Greed and foolishness of the politicians in East Africa brought about the death of one of the best regions in Africa. We were ahead of the rest and the western world could not swallow it. Fortunately, there were some idiots in leadership to convince otherwise. Currently, the same is also happening.
Hi there, Nice to have an EAA site. I worked as cabin crew between 1974-1977. It was great experience. I have wonderful memories of crew &staffs.. Special thoughts for Capt Ricketts, Rajesh Jetwa, Ms Wambui, Ms Chettiar.... I shall be visiting Nairobi 24-31October and am really thrilled. Will keep in touch...
I worked for EAA until the end of 1976 and had the time of my life. From flying the Twin Otters around the game parks to flying the Frelimo troops in to Lourenco Marques to take over from the Portuguese. A wonderful place to work.
Great to see EAA have it's own site!
Hi David I didn’t work for East African Airways but my cousin Michael (Mike) Rigby did my family and I are trying to contact him as after my uncle died we have no contact details, another cousin also wanted to get in touch with him and his brother, I emailed a couple of people on the website one contacted me and said he knew Mike but had not seen him since the seventies in Harare or one of the African Airports and that Mike was a first officer mentioned in a book about the airline, I have the email of someone whose father was chief purser I believe, I will ask him if you can get in touch with him and if so will forward his email to you I would be interested in anything you could find out regarding my cousin, I hope you can get the information you require for your website Mary Hines
Hi there Very nice site! Apparently our place on rhapta road, Nairobi was built as airline staff housing. Are you in touch with any of the staff? I would love to know what the houses used to look like! Many thanks, Jane Bussmann
My father worked in East African Airways in the 50's and 60's as a commercial manager. I left Kenya in 1969. I have always had an interest in EAA. I flew in the Comet 4 a number of times and the VC10 era. Let me know when your website is up and running. Jim Maspero
