Vale Errol (Mac) McCormack Air Marshal AO (Retd)

It is with great sadness that we advise the passing of Errol (Mac) McCormack Air Marshal AO (Retd). 

Errol was born in Bundaberg in 1941 and commissioned as a RAAF pilot in 1963. He was assigned fast jet and completed tours in South East Asia (Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Borneo) on the F-86 Sabre, Vietnam on the Canberra bomber, US on the F-111A and US on the RF-4C Reconnaissance Phantom.

Errol had a distinguished career in the RAAF, commanding at squadron, wing and Air Force levels and retired from the RAAF as Chief of Air Force in May 2001. After retiring he was a Board Member and consulted for many local and foreign companies dealing with Defence. 

AIRMSHL McCormack was the inaugural Chair of the Sir Richard Williams Foundation and was instrumental in founding the organisation. 

A service will be held for Errol at the ANZAC Memorial Chapel of St Paul, RMC Duntroon, on Monday 22 April at 1330h. 

In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation in Errol's name would be appreciated -
