I am working from memories of thirty years or more ago on this page. There will be mistakes and omissions but please help me rather than complain.

See the contacts page for details of how to get in touch.

I especially need help from the airframe and engine guys.

If any of the Irish contingent are reading this - we would love to hear from you.

Lastly - most of the names are those that I came into contact with at the time the events in these pages took place. It is not an employee register.

If you want to add names and incidents from later years that is fine. The more people that contribute to this site the more interesting it will be.
