This quest will never be finished, but we are doing our best to cover as much ground as possible. And if any of this inspires you to become part of our team, our door is open. You'll be most welcome. We've got a lot of ground to cover!
We've been at this now since 2012 (and for some four years prior to that producing a site for others - it's a long story) and over this time our interests have widened from an initial, somewhat narrow focus on the personal histories of WWII pilots, beginning with our own family hero Alec Pietrzak, to today's broad spectrum which embraces all aviation people, from all nations and all eras. What ties this all together is, of course, the magic of flying, the impulse to soar as old as recorded time. We've even got history's first ever air crash: see if you can find it!
Our site reflects the passions of the wonderful people who build our content in their own time and at their own expense, and includes an extensive collection of aviation and military poetry, much of which is found nowhere else. We encourage you to be inspired, and to fully explore this site.
We are proud of the work we do. We strive always for accuracy in all our endeavours, and to conduct ourselves in an intelligent, enquiring and respectful manner. The generous assistance and support we receive from thousands of friends around the world, and the heartfelt response from those families we can help through our research are deeply gratifying.Kelvin Youngs, Aircrew Remembered
