Joined CXX as a nav in 2005, and neatly moved through crews 6, 5, 4, 3 and 2 until finally ending up as Captain of Crew 1 right up to flying on the last CXX Sqn Nimrod MR2 sortie on 30 Mar 2010. After that, spent a year completing the Aerosystems Course and then flew on P-8A Poseidons for the US Navy as an exchange officer for 4 years 2012-2016 before returning to the UK as the MPA Programme's Requirements Manager, 2016-2019, following the Government's decision to buy the P-8A. Helped to set up this Association in 2016, and am honoured to have the opportunity to continue to assist by serving as your vice-chairman. Started as the first Flt Cdr Ops on the newly-reformed CXX Sqn at Lossiemouth in 2019.
