Born round about the time the de Havilland Comet had its first flight - enjoy computers, use a RaspberryPi to supply ADS-B info to Flightaware.
Live around 12 miles from Heathrow so see plenty of aircraft activity to and from the airport at around 8000 feet. Low enough to be seen, high enough to be not too noisy.
Find aircraft fascinating but up to 2015 had hardly flown much, subsequently been to California 7 times in 777s and the iconic 747s. Flown in a light aircraft with friend who had a private pilot licence.
