Always interesting to receive information from Robert Harris. It’s a great way to reach out for people related to the airmen found in R.C. Harris’ s logbook or on a few of his pictures.

Sticky Murphy

My name is Captain Leo Tabone, South African Airways – Alan Murphy’s grandson Marcus Hanekom is a good friend of mine and we are sometimes rostered to fly together as a crew, he is a very capable and professional pilot and ‘Sticky’ Murphy would be very proud of his grandson following in his footsteps – one night at 40 000 feet over the Atlantic Marcus told me about his grandfather, his exploits which I really enjoyed – He has his grandfather’s logbook, medals and memorabilia proudly displayed in his study today, a tribute to a great and brave airman.
