Not today, but I have met him on a couple of occasions. Very interesting guy.
I never had the pleasure but I used to deliver to some of the Cortaulds factories around there and the staff would tell me some tales about him.

It was formally RAF Finningley a major V bomber base and logistics. The runway was very long.
I have never flown out of that airport, hence my ignorance.

I am somewhat fortunate in that my local airport, STR, was formerly a reconstituted US Air Force bomber base, and thus has an extended runway that can handle the 747 and larger aircraft. We were fortunate last year to get a visit from the converted 747 that houses the SOFIA flying observatory, and you could get an interior tour of it, which was frankly mindblowing.

Wow, I’m so jealous! I’ve seen Sofia images and they look superb, which is why I’m on tenterhooks waiting for James Webb next Tuesday!

Would I make you further jealous if I told you I got a tour around SOFIA when it landed at STR?

(a colleague of mine is a graduate of the University of Stuttgart and she worked with the astrophysics group for part of her dissertation; I have to say - and I am a tech-head - the stuff on SOFIA was absolute Science-fiction to me!)

And yes, I am also waiting with some excitement for the first images from the JWST next week.

Anything you’re unsure about on the tech front Strummer sling it across, I’ll give it the once over and dumb it down for ya ……. Be no charge either 😉
