Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

YORKSHIRE AIR MUSEUM - Yorkshire Post Supplement

Date: 24th March 2012

When  visiting  the Museum a couple of weeks ago, I was interviewed for the Yorkshire Post Saturday Supplement - partly because it is now the 30th Anniversary of the Falklands war and I was one of the Newsreaders at that time and partly because of my involvement with the Museum.

As my son has posted a link on his Facebook page saying how proud he is of me, I thought perhaps I could post the link too.

The article had one or two factual errors which I hasten to correct because the error was not mine.

I flew through the Sound Barrier in the early 70's at RAF Chivenor in a Hawker Hunter - one stands at Elvington and a very 'beautiful' design it is.  I then flew in 1983 with the Red Arrows in Display and the planes they flew and I think still use for their display are Hawks.

I have nothing but praise for the photographer - Simon Hulme.  I've never known a Newspaper photographer take so much trouble especially over 'outside' shots - and he got a very moody photo for the front page of me standing in front of a Nimrod.  I hope Simon won't mind my showing you the front page of the  Yorkshire Post Supplement which doesn't appear on the link.
