Norm Bishop R.I.P.

Sad news from Hokitika tonight, with the death of Norm Bishop co-founder of Westland Flying Services (http://3rdlevelnz.blogspot.com/2010/04/hokitikas-westland-flying-services.html). Norm was well known in West Coast aviation circles and was also well known for his involvement in log cartage, both working for and owning Westland Transport. My sympathy goes to Jill and the family.


  1. Yes very sad to hear of Norm's passing...I worked for him all those years ago, and still seems like yesterday, and what great days they were...He truly was a great guy and he shall be sadly missed...

  2. They certainly were great days Geoff... Had some great trips with you and Tom in the various Westland FS aircraft. Cheers, Steve Lowe
