Hi, my name is Geoff and my user name is Radman. I am 65 years of age and still working. I live in North Yorkshire about 10 miles NE of RAF Leeming. My job takes me all over the UK and overseas. I have been interested in aircraft and aviation since I was a kid in Teesside and joined the local Air Scout group. Had my first air flight in a Chipmunk at Catterick in the early 60's. Since then I have progressed and gained my PPL in the 1980's. I have just bought a scanner - UBC 125 XLT so will be listening in when I can around the country - Cheers Geoff

Yes, as a 14 year old it was a dream, but very bumpy smelly and noisey. Love to do it again
