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.

|Message||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
|Message||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.
|Message||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.
