My goodness, what a horrible tragedy that clearly made for an incredibly painful and shocking work day for you and, no doubt, everyone at the hangar, Matt. Mr. Macleod certainly sounds like the kind of man this world needs a whole lot more of. My heart goes out to you and to all of Mr. Macleod's family, friends and associates; I'm truly sorry to read of your loss. Be good to yourselves and do remember him well.

I have known Ian for about 40 years, he was one of my sister,s boyfriends back in high school, and always a bit of a family friend.

Ian was very instrumental in introducing me into the helicopter world, and kept a very close eye on me during my formitave years in this industry.

Ian was probably best known as CP at Nova, in Edmonton, but he actually started as an AME, and then went on to the piloting side of things.

Ian and his family were very big with horses, and spent most of his spare time hanging out with the kind of people that had more BS on their boots, than in their boots.

He was a long timer in aviation, and I know I will miss him, along with many, many others.

Rest in peace, my friend.
