In over 40 years of aviation photography I have met a wealth of wonderful people. Dedicated to performing their jobs, passionately pursuing their aviation hobby or otherwise involved in flying and/or making it possible for aircraft to fly. To all of them I want to express my sincere gratitude. Sadly some of these people have meanwhile passed away. I treasure the memories of them. As a tribute to all these fine people a selection of pictures taken through the years before, during and after flights is presented in this gallery.

With many thanks to Fred Willemsen, Peter van de Noort, Cor van Gent, Willem Helfferich, Pieter van Gemert and all other photographers that contributed to this collection of memories.
