Mike Goodwin

Woke up this morning and checked my email. I thought it was spam but after a closer look it was a rare email from Fabienne. Mike Goodwin, our good friend, is no longer with us. One of the founding members of Arawasi, contributed in numerous ways to our magazine and shared his enthusiasm and passion for Japanese aviation, X-planes and engines. His move to New Zealand kept him busy but he was there when we needed him. I remember him explaining that he got fascinated with aircraft engines when as a kid got his first model and was bewildered by the tiny engine.
A true friend, Mike will be sorely missed and will always stay in our hearts and minds.
Very difficult to describe how sad we are and our thoughts are with Fabienne and William.

Very sorry to hear this. Although I didn't know him, I have seen his name and work.

Blue skies always, Mike.....
