Eddie McMullen: ‘A true character and a great aviation man’

Eddie McMullen, the founder of animal transport specialist Intradco, has passed away, aged 66.
Chapman Freeborn, which acquired Intradco in early 2014, issued the following statement:
"We are sad to announce that Eddie McMullen passed away on the 19 November, aged 66. Eddie serviced the air cargo industry over a career spanning 40+ years, most notably as owner of air charter specialists Intradco.  
“He was diagnosed with brain cancer in early February of this year, and in true Eddie style he battled until his final days, and never let his illness slow him down from enjoying the things he loved.
“As messages of condolence have poured in from all over the world, the words ‘honest’, ‘old school’, ‘maverick’, and of course ‘fun-loving’ all appear hundreds of times.”
On behalf of the Chapman Freeborn Group, Shahe Ouzounian said: “Eddie was a stalwart of the charter industry, a true character and a great aviation man.
“More importantly, he was a great friend and colleague — we will all remember his sense of humour, kindness and generosity of spirit. He enriched all our lives and we were lucky to have spent at least a little time with him. We will miss him.”
If anyone would like to attend Eddie McMullen’s funeral on December 3, please contact his son, Charlie McMullen, for details: charlie.mcmullen@intradco-global.com
