Sir Freddie Laker, R.I.P.

Sir Freddie Laker died today.

May he rest in peace. My thoughts are with Lady Jacqueline and his family.

A true pioneer and a gentleman, whom I had the pleasure to meet in Colorado Springs in 2003 and again in New YOrk in 2004 at the Freddie Awards.

Update 2/11/06: The London Times ran a nice obituary on Sir Freddie Laker yesterday.
