Hi!! I'm Adrian Pingstone. I'm 62 years old and live near Bristol in the south west of England. I have two sons: John (23 years old) and Michael (19 years old).

I'm retired from the Aerodynamics Department at British Aerospace Bristol after 36 years working for the company. I worked mainly on Concorde noise and environmental problems and on Airbus A320, A330 and A340 wing design. My hobbies are playing with this computer and trying to keep my house and garden in order (and contributing to Wikipedia, of course).

I discovered Wikipedia in January 2003 and I'm completely fascinated by it. My main interest is contributing illustrations.
