Over the years, I have been taking photo's of 'most anything that moves. This has generated a significant gallery of negatives and slides. Much of this gallery is of aircraft.

Growing up in Lincolnshire, England, I lived in Bomber Country. Close by were fields like Waddington and Scampton, further out were Coningsby, Cranwell and Binbrook. While many fields have closed down, I was lucky enough to see the Vulcans, Lightning's and Phantoms that were based at these locations. These aircraft provided the music; the Zenit, Fuji, Olympus and Nikon were the recorders. Lincolnshire is still home to many bases; AWAC's, Tornado's, and visiting aircraft, the modern attractions.

Leaving the UK for the USA was a wrench. Fighters and bombers are much rarer in the New York metropolitan environs, so adventures to see these creatures have to be much further afield, and more time consuming. However, I have paid visits to Seymour Johnson, Davis Monthan, Travis, Castle, Dover and Nellis.

Photo's from these various visits will be placed here for view.

Additionally, I am associated with a photo library run by a good friend, Gary Parson, who is rapidly becoming a high profile aviation photographer. The library is called FFour, pay it a visit.
