This may be a "put ya to sleep topic" but I am curious. We may not know, but everyone out there has contacts with photographers here. The question is this - WHO HERE IS OLDEST AND WHO IS THE BABY ? It doesn't really matter. I am just curious. Those who have orbited the sun less than fifteen or more than seventy times - PLEASE REPLY !!!

I know spotters in their 60's. One guy in Geneva has turned his son into a spotter. The kid's about 11 years old and takes pretty damned good pictures!

oooh...... my (not rememorable) love of aviation started at..... not far off the age of Richard's daughter actually. My Dad brought me out to Dublin Airport when they used the old runway 23 - aircraft would come over your head at about 70 ft. Apparently I balled my head off every time Big grin. Anyhoo started the photography end 6 months ago and currently the Earth has given me 15 years so far. So hopefully many years to come  Smile

I just turned 16 last weekend,( I lied in my profile, I was a few months off, shoot me), but I am working on my 6 year old sister, she loves the 747. She always tells me "I want to see the big one". Unfortunately BA switched to the 777 here in PHX, so she will not get to see it here in PHX.
