Afternoon all, I'm Colin (aka Concorde Colin) and have been spotting since 1969, now aged 62 and retired I'm still at it!

I live in Isleworth just a couple of miles east of LHR/EGLL and am lucky enough to be right between the two westerly runway approach paths so rarely miss anything here, I do though get out and about a fair bit and in the past few weeks and called in at Booker, Fairoaks, Kemble, Shawbury, Barton, Bagby, Sibson, London City and to name but a few.

Numbers is still what drives me but I do also take pics from time to time, I'm also a lapsed PPL/A and like nothing more than just chilling at an airfield.... might do Denham tomorrow? :)

Hello all,
My name is Lesley and my username is 11E. Spotting (military) since 1981 and since 2009 also civil (numbers only). Only number crunching with a telescope and a notebook which is a rather rare profession these days. Long time ago I was in the air force and nowadays I work with UAVs. I live close to Kleine Brogel, Dusseldorf and Eindhoven and together with my son, which I teach the noble art of numbercrunching, I visit often these airports/bases.

Regards,
Lesley

Good evening, my name is Martin, thankyou for admitting me to the group. I am definitely more of an oldie than a newbie. I started spotting at MAN in the late 60's, started work there with Dan-Air in 1972, moved around a bit and finally retired at ABZ in 2012. If there are questions about aircraft/services at ABZ I hope I can help. Cheers.
