Tony's Pages









For many, aviation is like a disease - once its in your blood you have it forever.

This love of something very special often cannot be understood by others until the infection also strikes them. When it does, then watch out!

I enjoy nothing more than to sit in the company of another experienced aviator and watch the sunset with a large glass of red wine. I may not have that other person's skills or experiences, but I know that they can fly and that's enough.

The success or otherwise of any community is communication.
