Where have you been? What have you seen?
"Above: And something to fit underneath a Harrier wing that I never knew about, namely a rescue pod where the individual gets into the pod and is flown home under the wing! Apparently only a prototype! "
An idea for the next James Bond perhaps?
Flying is the second greatest thrill known to man.
Peter passed away yesterday (15.01.13) in hospital. He had recently had problems with one the valves of his heart. He was advised that an operation would be risky in his condition and sadly this proved to be the case.
Another loss to the aviation community.
I was going to respond to this "the disputes seemed to go on for years", to write that England needs to treasure its eccentric people as these are the people who made Britain great.
I hope his legacy is maintained, it's the way to honour him.
In BC wondering wandering
Sad news indeed..
Thoughts to his family.
Looks like Peter's intention was for the Gatwick Aviation Museum to keep going after his passing.
As someone who visited it a number of times I cannot recommend it enough, its a fantastic private collection.
RIP - peter , I have a feeling his museum may live on for many years, reading between the lines , it seems he was the council's new best friend in terms of stopping further development at Gatwick !
