Australian aviation legend James Strong died last night from complications following surgery. Mr Strong initially made his reputation reinventing government carrier TAA  in the late 1980s.

He gave the airline a new name (Australian Airlines) and also a fresh sense of purpose which staff wholeheartedly bought into at a time when the privately owned Ansett was in the ascendancy.

Mr Strong went on to lead Qantas, managing its merger with Australian Airlines and the carrier's privatisaton in 1995. Mr Strong was also a director of many significant Australian companies.
