I just found this site and was looking forward to chatting with Ken as he was a former Sidewinder as was my Father in Law.
Our thoughts are with his family.
Judging from the posts here, he had many friends.
Sad to see another fly West.
Edit!! I just realized I have the wrong Ken!
It does not change the sadness of another brother in arms leaving us. But, Ken Hinks will be happy to hear his demise is premature!
