Not sure where to post, but sad news that Terry Westrop was killed on Sunday while riding his motorbike.

Well known in the aerobatic circles and famous for the Loaded Dice range, thoughts must be with his family and flying friends

I was notified on Sunday afternoon.

Terry was the UKCAA Chairman. Members have been notified through normal formal channels.

He was a wonderful guy, I only knew him for 4 years - so warm, freindly and approachable. A fantastic flier and a superb aeromodeller. His models were a work of art

Such sad news, I flew a couple of times with him, and always a gent. Sincere condolences to his family.

I only knew him through his designs. Never knew that he was a fellow motor cycle enthusiast.

My condolences to his friends and family.

Simply awful

Never met him, nor saw him fly, but I much admired his work on here (most recently through the UKCAA threads). I have a Newman Precision Aeros Loaded Dice 40 and was looking forwards to any feedback, which I was sure would be forthcoming, when I got around to blogging the build. That of course pales into complete insignificence next to the loss of his family and those who knew him

Another great of our hobby gone. What terrible news

Gosh....how tragic. His Loaded Dice design with an OS 91FX was my first real aerobatic model. A great aircraft until I got too clever. Great man will be sadly missed.

I've seen Terry a few times. Shame, but I remember his famous "Leisure Suits" he wore in the late 80s' early nineties.

RIP

Not wishing to intrude on His Close Friends and Family whatsoever

It Was an absolute pleasure to have met Terry

We shared like - minded views on many subjects , not least Model Aeroplanes.

What a very great shame that He has been taken from us, before His Time.

Top Class Designer , Flyer and Builder .

World Class Human Being.

Respect .

Sadly I never got to meet him but I did communicate with him on this forum regarding the Loaded Dice. I will miss him for his help and advice.

My sincere regrets to Terry's friends and family.loaded dice 014.jpg

Only ever met him at places like the Nationals and Sandown Park, but his son Andy is in the shop every week, a super keen aeromodeller too. Terry had been working with the another magazine title on designs and articles, I'm sure he could have taught people a lot. A friend bought one of Terry's Loaded Dice models when he had break from the hobby a few years ago and it was a joy to fly.
