That's a great milestone Thierry. It is a particular pleasure for me to post in such a thread here - Thierry is one of the gentleman on this website and has been a great help and support over my time here.

I had the good fortune to catch Thierry one morning at Manchester in his working environment - in the days of his love affair with the Fokker!

He is still in love with the Fokker's.
In a recent email he even told me to return to Tyrolean one day............

Thanks Spence! This shot got rejected at least twice (can't recall if there might have been a third time) but in the end, the superior quality of this remarkable photo prevailed.

1995 in the db as of now, only 5 to go. I'm counting on you, Stefan, so get back to work!!  

Also thanks to you other guys for the kind words! I hope I'll be able to share my work with all of you for many more years to come.

Viv, change that to should have met. I met up with Thierry and spent the day with him at Legends last month.
Thierry was someone I had talked to often on the net and he was good company, an aquaintance became a friend.

Yes, I really should have been more organised, to arrange something beforehand.

Mick, I was at Legends on the Saturday, but without a DSLR (long story). I would have liked to meet you too. Boy, was it hot!
