Current Projects

I am currently involved with the following historical aviation projects:

1. To "Bring Home The Images"

There are about 9 major holdings of invaluable images from the Australian mainland during WW2 held in the US National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). These images are not digitised or easy to access. My aim is to get these collections into an online searchable database to make them more accessible to everyone.

3. Eagle Farm Aviation Society

Eagle Farm Aviation Society has formed to work with Brisbane City Council (BCC) to develop and operate Brisbane's premier aircraft museum in Hangar 7 of the old Eagle Farm airfield. This hangar was used by the Allied Technical Air Intelligence Unit (ATAIU) during WW2 to rebuild captured Japanese aircraft to flying condition, to gain much needed enemy aircraft intelligence.
