Tim comes by his interest in aviation honestly despite the fact that he is not a pilot and has no military experience. His father was a Navigator in WWII flying  Special Operations in a Handley - Page Halifax. Tim first became involved with aviation as an Air Scout while still wearing short pants! He obtained a Business Degree in the United Kingdom and joined British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) after graduating from University. He served  as a Station Operations Officer in Dubai, Tokyo and Beirut. He returned to the UK and worked in BOAC's Air Cargo Division before becoming General Manager of an All-Cargo Airline based at East Midlands Airport.
Later Tim began working for an air freight forwarder. He immigrated to Canada, with his family in 1980. Before retiring he was the CEO of a large  air freight and logistics company.
He has been a volunteer Tour Guide, Speaker and Educator at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum since retiring in late 2010.
