Bill was an absolute legend to me, as I worked for him back in the late '60s early '70s and he used to check and sign out my work on 'county's' tigers.I flew with him several times in his mooney and dove and I watched not a 'pilot' at work, but an artist.I can still here his voice now and all I can say is RESPECT.

A lovely man. I first met Bill in the late 80's, when I was introduced to him by a friend of mine in respect to using NR. Later, I was to become his neighbour in the portacabin when I set up an office there for the computer business. An affable fellow. I enjoyed his many stories frequently shared over a cup of tea in the afternoons. I doubt if there are any more 'Bills' left within the aviation business, but he certainly carried on doing what he loved most, to the end.

An absolute credit to the aviation industry and a man who certainly knew where the 'seat of his pants', should be!

Bill Webb and "The Webb Wonders Hangar" were some of my most early memories of Biggin when I first joined the elite - "Biggin Hill Bums" in 1965.
I can still remember clearly the Aberfan tip disaster and the hordes of reporters descending on Biggin. Naturally Bill and the Dove were on their way and I think they got some of the first pictures of that terrible day - Have Dove will travel (almost anywhere)!

My sincere condolences to his family and may they take comfort from the fact that he will be remembered (throughout the world of aviation) with great affection.

I never knew Bill very well - different clubs, different worlds, you know the form. From what I heard from the Eulogies, saw from the photographs and read from the above, I have that empty feeling that I have somehow missed out. -- One of Biggin's much loved sons, our memories of him will live on.

As John Willis has already said, Bill was one of the few people that was liked and respected by everyone. I will add one exception - the CAA, ever since Bill told them "aeroplanes were built to fly, not pull apart".

Farewell Uncle Bill - you, your help, and your stories, will be sadly missed.

Bill will be sorely missed. Quite apart from his great personal qualities, he represented a different - and more romantic - era in aviation.

In all the 40 years that I have known 'Uncle Bill' he only drank a 1/2 pint at a time, which
could be several - he never used bad language,
other than - Crumbs, Crikey or Cripes! these were the most vulgar words that he ever used.
His navigation was rule of thumb - I will explain it to you in the bar ... it is so simple! ......

I first met Bill when I came to Biggin Hill in the early 70's. He was a very affable character, always had a smile on his face backed by a wonderful sense of humour. I respected him enormously because he was clearly 'his own man'. He linked the younger generation to the most threatening period in the freedom of this nation (the second world war)and played his part in ensuring that my, and future generations enjoy the freedoms which we now take for granted and think of as our right. Bill Webb, Biggin Hill and aviation will always be linked and remembered.

I thought I should be the first to make an entry in this guestbook for Bill.

A really remarkable man, and a good friend. One of the few people I have ever met that was liked and respected by everyone who came into contact with him.

He will be truly missed.
