Former Skywest man killed

Former Skywest Airlines director Miles Cattle has died after a motorcycle crash in Phuket.

The 63-year-old, who had been living on the Thai holiday island, died on Sunday after he lost control of his Harley- Davidson.

He reportedly hit a roadside concrete pillar and had severe internal chest injuries.

He died on the way to hospital.

The Phuket News said Mr Cattle's former wife and daughter had arrived in Phuket and would return his body to Australia.

Originally from Belgium, Mr Cattle moved to WA after graduating from university and worked as a jackaroo before moving into business in Esperance.

Mr Cattle joined the local council and was involved in travel agencies.

In the early 1980s, he bought the Skywest Airlines agency in Esperance and later owned shares in the airline and had a board seat.

He left the airline in 2002.
