From Flying TV’s website:-
It’s with enormous sadness and regret that we share with you the passing of our founder and MD, Mike Smith.
Mike died on Friday 1st August in hospital, following complications from major heart surgery. His wife Sarah, his family, Mona and JP were with him.
One of his many legacies is Flying TV, the company that he created over 10 years ago to combine his passion for flying, first class camerawork and television.
It is with great pride that Mona, JP and Sarah will ensure that Flying TV continues with Mike’s absolute determination to bring you the very best that aerial filming and photography can offer.
Editor note – There are plenty of other supporting news stories online, including this one from the BBC where Mike became widely known for both his radio and television presenting work.
