'I'll be back!' vows retiring Norm!
Published: 29 Oct 2019
After 11 years as Air Ops Exec at Douglas Bader House, Norm Webster is hanging up his dayglo jacket and looking forward to a long and happy retirement.
Norm began his association with the Air Tattoo as a volunteer on the Air Ops team for two years before joining the permanent staff. This followed a 37-year career in the Royal Air Force, where he spent most of his time on helicopters. "I think I must have flown in every helicopter type in UK military service during the 1970s, 80s, and 90s," he said.
Both Norm and wife Caren retired this month from their respective jobs and plan to sell their home in Fairford and move to be closer to their family up north. They also plan to do a lot more travelling.
However, all is not lost.
Norm said his plans for the future included volunteering on the Air Ops team once again.
He said: "I've had a thoroughly enjoyable time at DBH and I've made a lot of good friends along the way. I'm very much looking forward to being a volunteer again - so you haven't seen the last of me yet!"
