Bad Boy Sam!

Wed Apr 23, 2003 7:08 pm

Hi all

Having a look through Sam Chui's profile, I came across some nice pics that his friends had painted of his images.

Correct me if I am wrong, but one of them looks very like:

I've got no problems with this whatsoever......maybe Sam has a very similar image in the database.

Sam, who was the painter and is it possible to get a better picture of the painting?

Cheers

Gary Watt

Hi all

Sam, forgot to mention.....one of the guys in your pics, wasn't he the one that was featured in the UK's Airport TV show that wanted to get as much easyJet flight in one day as possible?

Looks very much like him.

Cheers

Gary,

Would u be preferring to a guy by the name of Luke Chittock? Big grin

Yeah he's our resident PER travel agent guy... He's got as many hours in the air as a pax as quite a number of airline pilots. A great guy with a couple of photos in the database too, and he organised our recent Cunderdin trip on a chartered F50 for us!

Yep, definitely him that was on the TV.

Cheers

How ironic!

I saw those pics in sams profile yesterday and was about to e-mail him about the man in one pic because I thought he looked like the man who tried to do as many EZY flights as he could!

That man was dedicated!

BTW Gary, he was on Airline not Airport  Smile

Ahhhhhhhhhhh
Oops kinda embarassing here. Embarrassment

The painter is Steve Leadenham, from London originally now resides in Sydney. He is a super nice and decent guy just like Gary  Big grin If there is anything mistaken, I encourage you to send him an email, I am sure a resolution will be found. I wish I could have taken a nice evening shot of 747 ILS13 Kai Tak like Gary did.

Here is his website
http://www.spin.net.au/~leadenham

His site seems not working at the moment though.

I have given all permissions to use my photos for the purposes of printings by Steve and very happy the way he does. The paintings were in the photo in my profile because of that night my slide night was held in my house, Steve brought some examples to show me. I have never seen those likekinds before! I am sure the shot by Gary painted by Steve is not for profit or any related commercial practice. Prehaps Steve like's it so much that he overlooked and use it as a practice! Steve's hobby involved painting and aeroplanes! Having a shot painted by him (and see in real form) is a huge pleasure and honor!


Sam

P.S. The guy in 3rd photo is Luke Chittock, Amity Travelworld of Floreat, Perth, very famous local TV celebrity. He is now my "sole" travel adviser, booked the NY and Concorde trip for me which I enjoyed tremendously. I have about 100 photos soon to be uploaded! Hope you stay tuned! He recently flew 19 legs in 4 days in India on Jet Airways. I encourage you to send him email (I can tell you if you email me) if you are interested in his log book, flying history etcs...

I just brought this thread up, considering some of you may be interested a new airline

Air Chittock

operates out of Perth with a Boeing 727-100 from Royal NZ Air force before but may get Concorde with more than 1 pound offer than Virgin later this year because of the 727 - "Spirit of Sam" keep crashing over in places  Sad

Here is the recent accident with wheels falling off in Coffs Harbour, NSW




But I can assure you the service on Air Chittock is unbelivable, first class seating and personal chef cater you needs.



PR manager with one customer



More happy customer!



The happy entrepreneur, chef, flight attendant, baggage loader, ground crew. Luke Chittock



Thats all so far. We are looking to serve soon with those Concordes.  Big grin
