What Made F. Trevor Braden Run?

Trevor Brading and Family

     Another great one has left us.
     Well-known air cargo industry icon and leader for 40 years, 1956 until 1996, Trevor Brading died at aged 89, in UK following a brief illness.
     Trevor joined the air cargo industry in 1956, initially working for Pan American Airways. He left Pan Am to join Airport Courier Service in the 1960s, and then went on to work for National Airlines as its UK Cargo Manager around 1968.
     When National was bought by Pan Am in 1980, he re-joined Pan Am briefly, before leaving again to join Delta Air Lines as its Cargo Manager UK, where he remained at Delta until his retirement in 1996.
     Trevor was a long-serving committee member of United Kingdom Air Cargo Club Heathrow branch, of which he was Chairman for various terms in the 1980s and 1990s.
     Trevor’s abiding passion was running, which he only took up at the age of 40. He could be seen running along the Seven Mile Ride from Windsor Castle every day before going to work, and also ran 26 full marathons (including London, Atlanta, New York, Boston and even the Grand Canyon), countless other 5k and 10K races and many of the World Airline Road Races (WARRs).
     He was also a very proud member of the Delta Dusters.
     One of Trevor’s proudest moments was carrying the Olympic torch in Atlanta (Delta’s home city), for the 1996 games in San Francisco.
     He also ran the 40 miles from London Heathrow to London Gatwick in memory of his late friend Kevin Bell, successfully raising enough money to buy a baby incubator for the Princess Royal Hospital.
     “Those who knew Trevor will remember him as a quiet-spoken, modest, but very warm individual whose knowledge of the industry was unsurpassed,” writes Derek Jones.
     “Trevor was a true Gentleman,” he concluded.
     Happy Landings always, Trevor Brading.
     In the race of a life well-lived, you were always out front and pulling away.
