I wrote a post in April 2009 about Indian aviation titled “Flying in those days”, and referred to a small airline called Jamair.
Since then, I have received messages from two people who were closely involved with Jamair, though in different ways.
One was from Katherine Quinn, the daughter of one of Jamair’s founders, Eddie Quinn. I had posted her comment in September 2011.
The other was this morning from Lalit Mawkin who wrote, “This is just amazing — 5th December 1970, my uncle Captain SS Sehgal was co-pilot with Captain Mehta and they died in that crash behind INA. I was just browsing about 1970 and Jamiar and found this post which carried me back to 1970’s. Thanks. LK Mawkin
Thanks for your comment, Lalit. I am sure you recall your uncle with considerable pride.
In today’s jet age, we forget about those intrepid fliers who helped transform commercial aviation. They deserve to be saluted.
