Ok, here goes; following the recent Southern Hemisphere meeting of certain Forum Members, it was suggested that it's so nice to actually see what we all look like, we ought to have a special place to show the pictures.

So, here it is and I thought that I had better get in first! So, here's me in front of one of my all-time favourite 'boats - the Danish PBY Catalina at RAF Cosford museum.

Gorgeous.

This is me, taken at Palomar Airport, California in August, 2007. I had a 40 minute flight in the 1929 Travelaire behind me. I even got to take the controls for some of the flight.
