One of the victims of the Air France crash was Neil Warrior, head of PR for Mazda Europe, and a former MIPAA member, who I remember from his days at Alfa Romeo in the early 1990s. Such tragedies are always brought closer to home with the personal losses and you cannot help but feel deeply for all those family and friends in this terrible incident. May they find answers and some peace as soon as possible.
