Tim Ward

The mention of Robondo reminds me of a pilot friend that I had met in the Serengeti. Tim Ward was one of those friendly people who would take the time to help you. I only knew him briefly, but he helped me find my way around the Serengeti during the film. I was shocked when I later learned that he had crashed taking off from the 900 meter airstrip on Robondo. Everyone one board was killed. I had filed this somewhere in the back of my head and was very surprised to meet his widow some years later in South Africa. I got to know him better by listening to her, and she said to me, 'God takes young, those he loves the most.'
