Aviation and me
Ever since my early teens I’ve been to a degree varying between ‘keen’ and ‘nuts’ about aircraft and aviation. Starting as a plane-spotter and airshow-goer, Airfix model maker and then aspiring RAF entrant (failed) and finally finishing up with air-to-air photography via my own PPL (Private Pilots Licence).

Attaching a camera to the aircraft

The smell of aviation fuel, walking to the jet, pulling G and earning a living. Sometimes life is this good

Sadly the loss of these aircraft in which I had flown also resulted in the demise of some of their pilots. Their loss from the world of aviation preservation is greatly mourned.
