How did you become interested in aviation? As a young lad I grew up within 2 miles of Leeds Bradford Airport.
At the time my mother worked at the airport and my farther would say "come on, lets go early to pick your mum up and we'll watch the planes".
So we'd head up to the airport and spend an hour watching aircraft land and depart before my mum finished her shift.
During the time my mother worked at LBA the airport was going through a period of rapid expansion, extending the runway and terminal building along with realigning the public roads surrounding the airport.
The airport expansion was formerly opened by the arrival of a Wardair Boeing 747 and a British Airways Boeing 747. As a young lad it was a period of fascination and my interest for the subject grew stronger.
As a teenager I become interested in cycling and photography so the two went hand in hand with my interest with what was happening at the airport. I would spend many weekends cycling to the local vantage points to view the aircraft and take photos.
