Faith Hope and Love

Andrew Phillips spoke to Daughter, Rebecca King, about her father charity co-founder, former RAF Flight Lieutenant and Normandy Landings veteran Stuart Sendall-King, who has died aged 98.

From the Website “Our dear founder and friend, Stuart King, went to his Lord’s house on Saturday 29 August, and is now rejoicing in that heavenly temple. MAF co-founder, former RAF Flight Lieutenant and Normandy Landings veteran, Stuart was one of the early pioneers to take light aircraft to the remotest parts of Africa in the aftermath of World War II.

Highly skilled, tenacious and dedicated to helping those in need, Stuart began a lifelong mission to reach the most isolated and forgotten people using aviation and technology. This vision has become Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) – an international Christian charity and the world’s largest humanitarian airline.

Serving as an aircraft engineer during the Second World War and ending his RAF career as Chief Technical Officer at RAF Duxford, Stuart nurtured a growing desire to use aircraft for good – helping to establish MAF in 1945.

Struck by the isolation of countless thousands of people living behind physical and economic barriers, Stuart, along with a handful of RAF personnel, set out to discover the extent of their needs.

His determination and sense of adventure led him on a survey flight across eastern and central Africa in 1948 – a pioneering mission that shaped the course of Stuart’s future and paved a way forward for humanitarian aviation.”
