Our travel agency EQUATORIAL AGENCIES LTD in Jinja were the handling agents for EAA at Jinja airport from 1950 until 1972. Our main office was in Kampala.We also had a branch in Nairobi for a few years during the 60s. I would very much appreciate it if anyone has any photos photo of the airport or any other information from those days.

My Late Grandmother Ms.Agatha Bilha Wanjiru used to work as a flight attend for EAA till it wound up then Kenya Airways till the early 1980s. She inspired me so much with Stories, Letters, Payslips, Photos and Souvenirs from the various Destinations they went to,that I pursued flying and also flight operations. Currently a young Flight Operations Officer in Nairobi. If anyone remembers her my Emailsemaina7@gmail.com

Joined EAA in Glasgow in 1973 as local manager until the end of the airline in 1977. Made many friends during this time in the UK, Nairobi and Mombasa. After the closure,went on to work for Kenya Airways in Scotland and as UK Sales Manager for a while, but many of the EAA 'characters' were not so lucky.

Loved the website. I was a regular passenger with EAA in the 70's having a home in Nairobi but attending boarding school in the UK. I did my first unaccompanied flight on one of the VC10s in March 1971 aged 8 years! I drew a picture of one of the air hostesses and I wonder if she still has it! Flying was such an adventure in those days compared to the mundane business it has since become. I remember Captain Rose, who flew the DC aircraft on internal routes, and his particular brand of dry humour.

I have just signed the guest book, but as a second thought making me give a bit more info. IFrom 1966 flew all the a/c in EAA, except the VC10 and the 707. I had decided to end my flying career before turning 40, by then being a capt on DC 9. I resigned just before the end of EAA, only being scheduled for a month 'farewell' flying in February. However on my return, standing at Oslo airport with my tickets for Nairobi, I was told by SAS that all EAA tickets were being made redundant the previous night, but SAS gave me a class II free ticket to Nairobi and return to Oslo.  For me a new life began working for the Norwegian CAA, where I ot the job as Head of the Incensing Department. Eventually working in ECAC being a chairman of various committees. The CAA made me keep my licencees currant, last being checked out on 757 and 767.  Then came 1994 and the University of Oslo got a request from the new government in South Africa to assist in restructuring the 'Black Universities'. My wife was offered the job, and took it because of my longing for Africa. This resulting in a life of 6 month in Norway and 6 month in SA. A life pattern still going on, having a home in both places.  I am contact with Capt. Erik Molberg and plan to take part in the EAA reunion in June 2016 in UK, which Erik and Jerry arranges. "Mgeni njoo, mwenyeji apone". Hope to see you there! - To get to know where the winds blew you.

I was on the RAF VC10 crew that took the survivors to the UK after the tragic crash in Addis Ababa. I can still see the broken runway lights and the t tail visible at the end of the runway as we landed and taxied by. It was supposed to be a night stop but the injuries to the pax was so severe we turned round as quick as possible and due to crew duty time took off for RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus. Does anyone know any survivors on that aircraft that we took to the UK?

Fond memories of flying in on a East African Super VC10 on a cold December 1967 night, as a six year old coming to settle in the UK, seeing snow at Heathrow for the first time. I'm sure there are a lot of East African Asians out there who have stories to tell of flying on EAA.

This website is great, it brings back the memories of EAC. I joined the corporation in mid Sept 1968 as a Stewardess, I then changed to Reservation at Sadler House in Nairobi until 1977.  I would like to get in touch with Wilson Awuor who was also a staff at Sadler House in 1976/1977. We communicated twice and then lost touch. Any chance of getting in touch with him will be appreciated.

Yes those were the days where Airline Industry was a "Jewel". East African Airways Corporation brought forward quality.
