Those of you who know me well know that I am fascinated (obsessed) by stories of aircraft failures and crashes. A very foolish interest for a person who travels by air so often.
But I love the drama and the complexity of the investigations and I admire the determination of the aviation community to find, and learn from, the causes of all aircraft faults and errors.
And without a doubt I am fascinated by air travel. Leaving the ground. Leaving the planet. (If I were younger I probably would sign up for Mars)
So, when my nephew Martin and I somehow came to the conclusion that I needed a Drone (photographic only) and that it would need flying skills I naturally referred back to a hero of mine, Qantas QF32 pilot Richard De Crespigny.
I now introduce you to the newest member of the Bear and Alexa in Germany Blog team
Herr De Crespigny: (aka Richie!)
As you will have seen from the previous blog, Martin has been out here training me. I admit there have been a few rocky moments but here are some of the results.
