AGIFORS and the airline OR community has lost one of its most endearing and thoughtful personalities in Keith Rapley. He was the AGIFORS President from 1993-1996. For Keith, OR was not so much a matter of methodology as a way of looking at the world, a stance that enriched the community of both those working directly on operational research projects and those in the wider airline community. His obituary will appear in the December edition of Inside OR. RIP.
