I'm a paragraph. Click here to add your own text and edit me. It's easy.

I've always been an aviation nut and joined the RAAF where I flew P-3 Orions, C-130s, Mirage 111-E/Os: I took a look at the   F/A 18 Hornets and finally, finished up on the B707. I then went to Qantas flying B747-200, -300 & 400s and the "annoying Airbus 320 and 330s". I also trained on the ATR-42 and 72.

 My interest in Korean war and post-war aircraft is due in part to moving to South Korea and marrying a fabulous Korean girl who can fly pretty much everything with wings. My father-in-law was a senior ROKAF officer overlooking several fighter wings: he and his father owned a couple of F-86F Sabres and a Cessna 37A Dragonfly, and he still flies his P-51D Mustang.

With another ex-RAAF friend, we rebuilt the KBS TV K-Pop division from the ground up and employ the best camera crews and technicians. I travel around much of Asia making a variety of different films, often flying the fun Learjet 35.

I'm a keen modeller when time permits and have around 500 kits in storage of which I'm going to have to cull as I won't live to build them all. On the modelling bench are several F-51Ds, F-86E/F Sabres, these are to be ROKAF models, plus  F-4K/M Phantoms RN & RAF. However, I am still looking for that elusive Frog P-1 Prototype Lightning kit that one of you is holding onto for me HINT HINT!
