Malcolm is a friend, I friend I have never even met (yet), someone I would never have even had the chance to know without this site.
Well done with the milestone, largely on GA too. You almost had Morgansfield to yourself until recently. Keep them coming. Though they are rarely popular, these light aircraft need recording for posterity and far too few of us do it.

Thank you Anthony and to all for your kind words.
But the figure itself is not as significant to me as the fact that to my continuing surprise, so many have shown an interest in my images, with numerous appearances on other websites and in a few publications.
I note that my first upload was back in 2003 and a large number of them are scanned from 35mm colour negatives, many for a second time as the standards back then were quite a bit lower than they are today. Somewhere I have an email with 47 acceptances!
It has been a very enjoyable experience, something of a labour of love I think, but am most grateful for the opportunity originally provided by Johan and also, the help received from editors, screeners, fellow A.netters and particularly from the ever helpful and knowledgeable Mick Bajcar has been very much appreciated.
Oh, and mostly without the benefit of airliner images - mostly military and GA.
May I be forgiven!
The intimate atmosphere of a small grass airfield on a sunny summers day in the company of reminiscing self-build pilots is quite irresistable; the loss of the engine on take-off at 800 feet not quite such an enjoyable experience.
My interest lies in the future as I am going to spend the rest of my life there!
