    Hiya guys. I found this site via another aviation related site I am on.
    I'm from the UK, and love ww2 aviation. I try to fly with friends whenever I get the chance too and have flown in autogyros, microlights, light aircraft, helicopters, gliders and been parachuting amongst other things.
    Anything you want to know, just ask!

    Hiya. Ok the autogyro was a bit unnerving to fly in and rather breezy (a bit like a wobbling microlight). What else can I tell you? I can be found on facebook www.facebook.com/dangerousdave if you want to look at pics of me at Perth (Australia) air museum (with me in a Lancaster!!) and a few others of me and aircraft too. I also have some photos of RAF Scampton and Woodhall Spa (the Petwood Hotel, 617 Sqn Officers Mess amongst other things).
    I've also got some pics somewhere of Ken Wallis' autogyro collection that I will have to dig out as well.
