Was with EAA from October 1965 till finito, 1977. Worked in Traffic Department at Dar airport and briefly at Kilimanjaro.  If you were a captain on the fleet, chances are I must have completed one or two weight and balance documents which you had to sign before take off.  Best wishes to all you good people.

Hi, I was on r&r out of the copperbelt first week of May 1972 and flew out of Entebbe on an EAA Twin Otter to Paraa Lodge in the Murchison Falls, N. Park. Canadian Captain and just 4 of us as pax. He buzzed the Lodge and dropped us off then headed back to Entebbe. We sat at the grass strip for a couple of hours in the cab of the old red Bedford fire truck. The lodge apparently did not hear him buzz them and they only found out when they radioed Entebbe to find out where we were. Great weeks holiday at the lodge( magnificent old bulls skull with mounted tusks in the reception) spoiled by security in Entebbe taking the film from my camera on the way out. The reason for the rambling post; is there anyone out there who can give me the gps coordinates of the old grass strip which Paraa Lodge used before they built the one they use now. Thanking you all in anticipation. I also lived and worked in Kisuma, before, during and after the break up. Wonderful memories

My father, Bill Duirs, flew with EAA for some years in the 1960s. DC3, Twin Otter. F27 and SVC10 before moving on to Gulf (Aviation) Air. Bill retired in 1984 from Gulf and died in New Zealand in 2010: I'd appreciate any photos, or memorabilia that anyone could let me have regarding his time with EAA. We were a Kenya family from way back, Bill having flown with Campling and Wilson after WWII, farmed in Molo/Turi and done some hours during the Emergency with KPAW.

At the beginning of the 1970s and onwards, we, - together with my family,- used to use quite a number of times the EAA. ( In those years I was a member of staff of the Makerere University Medical School, Kampala. Nice old times...) EAA was a reliable and good airlines. It's a pity that it was closed, BUT at the present time Kenya Airways ( KQ ) what I use now is a very good and high level replacement.

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.
