I was watching a programme on TV last night, and a small segment about one of my all time heroes came up.
Made me think, who are your heroes and why?
For me, I guess my heroes are first and foremost, my Dad. He died when I was 10, but he was the one I always did and still do look up to as my inspiration.
Secondly, aviation related, my hero is Sir Freddie Laker. The way he started his airline, pretty much launched low cost travel single handedly, a totally remarkable individual.
Finally, Red Adair. Putting out those huge fires the way he did, how more heroic could you get! I always remember him being the one to put out the fire on board the Piper Alpha in the North Sea following the massive explosion on 6 July 1988, which took the lives of 167 men.
So, who are your heroes?
