Re(3): Stan Cooper

For the info of those who may not know:
Stan aircrew background was as C-130A Flight Engineer, then posted to 37SQN to undertake C-130E conversion in the USA then ferry the E models back to Richmond in 1966/67.

The other "original" C-130E aircrew trained in the USA were Bob Greenwood, Roger Bateson, Ron McKimm (CO), Jockey Fordyce and Jim Bovell.

Ironically it is 50 years in August since the arrival of the first C-130E.

The No. 37 Squadron (RAAF) Association extend out sincere wishes for Stan's recovery.
