About Me:

Writer on aviation; retired stockbroker. Operate website on aviation and miltary issues, together with book reviews, Sky & Bullets.

Writings on aviation, miltary and international affairs. Reviews of books on the same subjects.

Re Grauniad: Best not watch the TV too, especially the Beeb. They have to work really hard not to report endlessly the supposed negatives arising from Brexit.

I somehow think there are more important…
