Shannon Chamber pays tribute to former Managing Editor of Air Transportation, Richard Malkin

Shannon Chamber was saddened to hear of the recent death of Richard Malkin, distinguished air cargo journalist and former managing editor of Air Transportation, who played a crucial role in spreading the news about Shannon in its early days.

Below is a copy of an article from the Clare Courier, published in 2003, which outlines the tremendous contribution Richard made to Shannon.  

The “father of Shannon”, as he was known, died at the great age of 104 years.


May he Rest in Peace.
