++++Passing of Chris Dixon

It is with deep regret that I advise you all of the passing of Chris Dixon at 05h00 on October 21, 2011 in Harare, Zimbabwe.

As we know Chris battled with the dreaded 'C' and let us rather rejoice and celebrate his life knowing his pain is over and now he can rest in peace.

Chris attested with 16 PTC in March 1962 ad gained his Wings in June 1963.

The Pilot
By Gene West

I hope there's a place, way up in the sky,

Where pilots can go when they have to die.

A Place where a guy can buy a cold beer,

For a friend and a comrade whose memory is dear;

A place where no doctor or lawyer can tread,

Nor a management type would ere be caught dead;

Just a quaint little place, kind of dark, full of smoke'

Where they like to sing loud, and love a good joke;

The kind of place where a lady could go

And feel safe and protected by the men she would know.

There must be a place where old pilots go,

When the paining is finished, and the airspeed gets low,

Where the whisky is old, and the women are young,

And songs about flying and dying are sung,

Where you'd see all the fellows who have flown west before,

And they call out your name, as you came through the door.

Who would by you a drink, if your thirst should be bad,

And relate to the others, "He was quite a good lad!"

And then through the mist, you'd spot an old guy

You had not seen in years, though he taught you to fly.

He'd nod his old head, and grin ear to ear,

And say, "Welcome my son, I'm pleased that you're here."

"For this is the place where true flyers come,"

When their journey is over, and the war has been won."

"They've come here at last to be safe and alone"

"From the government clerks and the management clone,"

"Politicians and lawyers, the Feds and the noise,"

"Where all hours are happy, and these good ole boys"

" Can relax with a cool one, and a well deserved rest,"

"This is heaven, my son... You've passed your last test!"

"Rest in Peace Chris'"

Deepest sympathies to Gail and family and also all of Chris's Course mates on 16 PTC

Messages of sympathy can be sent to Gail on

Kind Regards
