I am sure many of you served with John Macgregor – and flown with him in planes, helicopters and sports cars. It didn’t matter which - the indicated airspeed was always the same !
For those who may not know him, he was as a Gunner Officer both in field batteries and later as an AOP pilot in Canada and Germany.
With the consolidation of aircrew duties under the Airforce in the early 70s, he transferred to the pilot branch and served until his retirement. He then joined the Ministry of Transport, in the area of flight examination/regulation I believe.
He was also the CO of 15 Field Regiment RCA following his departure from the Regular Force.
Now John lives in the lower mainland of BC and has acquired this aircraft which I am sure you will all recognize as a former military, L 19, Light Observation Aircraft.
Interestingly the passenger in the photos is James Adkins – the son of Maj (Ret'd) Lew Adkins.
