Sydney Harbour

Hello and Welcome,

We're saddened to report the passing of our member, Reg Chasney.

From the Australian Association of Retired Airline Pilots (AARAP)


The NSW branch of AARAP has been advised that Reg passed away on Monday, Sept 13. He was 97 years of age.

Reg lived in East London, Essex and went to a grammar school

in Walthamstow until WW2. He then worked in his father's

shop until joining the RAF from 1941 to 1947.

After instructing for a while in Canada, Reg finished up in Java

via Europe. He flew a lot of very good aeroplanes in the RAF:

Harvard, Mosquito, Spitfire, Lancaster & Lysander. DC3

with British Airways and Constellations and Boeings with

Qantas. Reg still had a share in a hot sailplane.

Reg lived in Neutral Bay until moving to Ingleside with his partner Nelly.

AARAP NSW only received this yesterday, Friday 18 Sept, so we missed the service, but I will try and get details and

permission to view the streaming of it. I thought he was a real Gentleman who coped with some very

serious medical problems.
