last count, I had six aviation related websites on the go. Every
now and then, something comes along that demands to be shared
with the world but it just doesn't fit in with the theme of
an existing website. It may be an interesting aeroplane that
didn't have the good fortune to be built by Lockheed
or operated by Adastra
Aerial Surveys or it may be a Boeing
707 that wasn't operated by Qantas. It might be a DC-3 that
doesn't carry the registration VH-ANR
or cannot claim to be extant
in Australasia. There are also some aeroplanes which have
created history at airports other than Brisbane.
What I needed was a repository for all the odds and ends and
bits and pieces that didn't fit in anywhere else, so I decided
to construct this page. Clearly, the new page needed a title
- something unassuming and unpretentious as befits the limited
and eclectic range of its contents. Some candidates were deemed
to be too grandiose, so after much introspection, I settled
on something more understated and thus was born:
"The Definitive History of Aviation Since the Dawn of Time"
with all of my websites, it will have small beginnings. There
will be no mad rush to publish or perish. It will be added to
in a logical and relaxed manner as material presents itself.
