The Queen In Aviation

Wherever you are in the world, you will probably have heard of the recent news of the death of the Queen.

Amongst the sadness of the news, I thought I would share a few pictures of her in aviation.

Aviation has the ability to connect with people all around the world, all walks of life and all experiences, and that, for me is what makes aviation so special.

I hope you can enjoy these images and appreciate what a remarkable woman she was.
