About the logos ...

The first depicts that I am a Canadian first and foremost, the second - that I am a native son of Nova Scotia, the third to represent my Cape Breton (Sydney) regional roots ; the fourth, my present abode in Bagotville, Quebec.

Who am I? ....

A native of Cape Breton (Sydney), I'm currently retired after serving 34 years & 8 days with Royal Canadian Air Force  and  Canadian Forces,  having signed up just before Paul Hellyer's dastardly deed. 

Postings include Bagotville Quebec, Greenwood NS and Cold Lake Ab. As an airframe tech I worked on the CF101A & B Voodoo Interceptor, the Argus Maritime Patrol aircraft as well as its successor the CP-140 Aurora, the CF-5 Freedom Fighter, and the CF-188 Hornet. My last  assignment was with 439 Combat Support (Tiger) Squadron which flies both the CT-133 Silver Star (which is almost as old as I am) and the CH-146 Griffon which is an off the shelf Bell 412 helicopter.

Passionately fascinated by computers for the past 20 years, I enjoy programming databases and surfing the web, combining a love of aviation, history & computers to develop
