I have always been an airoplane nut and a keen aero modeler. I dabbled with R C aircraft while at school and after, without much success, and as a result my interest waned to no more than interested curiosity.
At the age of 18 I joined the RAF and trained as a Fire Man and was posted to RAF Kinloss in the North of Scotland this was a good time, and I enjoyed my time there emensly.Three years later at the age of 21 I got the ultimate promotion to Mister as I left the Air Force behind (Even the Station Comander had to call me Sir now )My profesion since then has been as a lorry driver in the main.
On June 6th 1994 I met my wife to be (Yes 50th aniversary of D Day) and a little over a year later we got married and we now have two boys David and Teddy (short for Thaddeaus) As I had tired of racing RC cars, I got interested in RC aircraft again about 3 years ago, and have been spending too much money and time on them ever since.
