Jim Tucker

Unread post by Roger » Sun Sep 06, 2020 8:46 pm

The Algoa family lost another one of our larger than life characters on 3 September after a long fight against Covid. Jim used to be part of a C210 syndicate and later the owner of a Blowers Flybaby.

Not many know that earlier in his life he had also been a deep sea diver and not even the North Sea could kill him - although it did try in a diving bell accident: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stena_Sea ... g_accident

Going to miss you Jim.
