"In February of 2016 this site celebrated its 20th birthday.
  Work on XPlanes has been exponential, an awful lot at the beginning and not a huge amount recently.
  Beware, therefore, that some information may be a little out of date.
  The pictures, however, are timeless and I hope you find something here to make your visit worthwhile.
  A lot of my pictures are scanned-in photos, pre-digital cameras, and my hope for this year is to re-scan many in better quality, and take some new ones digitally too.
