CAPTAIN PERRY BROWN
BASE - ABERDEEN / NEWCASTLE

TYPES FLOWN - HS 748

REMARKS: Hi,

I bring you some details of me and Darryl Hecht, who was my best friend in Dan-Air. We were both FOs on the HS748, based first at ABZ. I then moved to NCL, and Darryl to LGW. Darryl was the first officer with Roger Griffin when G-ASPL crashed at Nailstone on 26th June 1981. There’s a good picture of Darryl on Tom Briffa’s page in which I feature as well, when we were doing our 748 conversion course at Bournemouth Hurn.  I left the company in 1981 and went back into Engineering. I ended up my career by doing applied Mathematics research for BAe Systems, Military Aircraft Division. I did keep up my flying on a freelance part-time basis, although I am retired now. I did all sorts of interesting flying work. I suppose the best job I had was as a Beech King Air C90 captain flying night freight for National Airways. I was also a captain on the Embraer 110 Bandeirante, again on night freight.
