Rod Newman

Rod was an absolute gentleman, a highly respected instructor and one who gave tremendous yet calm inspiration to us young hotheads.

I first met Rod at RAF Woodvale in 1974 and along with so many others, thoroughly enjoyed flying with him. I am priviledged to have known him all these years

and remember fondly the laughs, the flying, the sailing and the later tours at Brooklands. Never without a cheery smile, he was always so uplifting.

Such a shame that it’s always the best ones who pass too soon. My sincerest condolences to Margaret, Phil, Sarah, Cat and John.
