St Helena Airport Timeline

2011 continued

15 August: Sharon Wainwright, St Helena Government’s airport project manager, died suddenly in London.

In a tribute, Governor Andrew Gurr wrote:

“Sharon was so vibrant and full of life that we are all finding it hard to come to terms with her passing. Her death is more than untimely; it is a disaster of considerable proportion for all of us.

“She will live in our memories for many years to come, and when the airport is eventually opened, whenever that may be, the many thousands who enjoy that facility and the benefits that it brings for decades to come, will owe gratitude to that memory.”

A YouTube tribute was published on the first anniversary of her death:
