A message from Robin Batchelor;
Tom Donnelly has breathed his last after suffering from dementia for some years. Affectionately known as Tomo by us all, we can now recall our memories of this lovely man who I met a long time ago, who taught me to fly ( and so much more), who asked me to join him building balloons in London ( Thunder Balloons). He and Dick Wirth taught me it's OK to be irreverent - and naughty and mischievous... all qualities in my young naiive curious heart waiting to be set free. I shall enjoy contributing to an obituary for the Aerostat, so please send me your stories. The naughtier, the better.
