Death of Roger Munk

It is with great sadness that we have to report the death of Roger Munk on Sunday 21st Feb 2010. Roger started his career as a Naval Architect but became involved in the world of Airships in the early 1970's. At the start of this journey, Roger met a man who had worked on the early generations of “Lighter than Air” craft who identified the 12 things that he believed needed to be fixed to make LTA properly viable. Roger then dedicated his career to working his way through the list. Along the way, he made time for other activities, including at one point, capturing the World Hot Air Balloon altitude record. However, it was his single minded approach to his adopted trade that made him stand out, as a man & an exceptional engineer, and earmarks him as one of the great 'doers' of the LTA world in the last 40 years. We offer our condolences to Annie, Roger’s wife, their children James and Alex, and all of Roger’s family, friends and colleagues.
