Will Blunt

Some of you may remember Will Blunt who worked in various roles at Birmingham
Airport during the time passenger operations were handled on the Elmdon side of
the airport before he moved to Dallas, Texas, with BCAL - British Caledonian

Sadly I have to report that I have heard from his family that Will passed  away
on Sunday 14 July 2013 (in Texas) after suffering a very bad stroke from which
he did not recover - he was 68 years old

Will joined MAS - Midland Airport Services - the handling agent owned by BMA
- British Midland Airways - in the 1960's and then worked for various companies
at Birmingham Airport before joining the cargo operation of BOAC
  As an aviation enthusiast Will was a photographer and has a huge collection of
outstanding images from the classic "Elmdon era" at Birmingham Airport and
has contributed these to many publications over the years including the
Airport Company's "70th anniversary" book that was published in 2009

Will's photos have also featured on the "Birmingham Airport Photo Blog" and
some are included here while others can be seen in this photo feature marking
the 60th anniversary of Aer Lingus operations to BHX - see here

I am sure that you will all join me in sending our condolences to his children
Chris and Caroline and the rest of Will's family at the sad time
