You Brits wear clothes when you fly?

For years, I have thought otherwise?

This is for Phil G, early 50's dad with Hoh Fang-Chiun, 5 years junior. Dad and Hoh were friend thru life till Hoh tragically died in a car accident. I know he came to Sweden in a dramatic way but I don't know the story and to late to ask dad.
....one more thing Hoh made his living being a computer/programmer freak/genius.
Some more pic's for Phil

...dad in jacket! The radio is a F&M Matador and the year 1963 I would guess. Picture taken at a military aerodrome outside Trieste, Italy, were they used to test primitive UAV's and the story goes that dads models flew much better and under better control than the UAV/Drones than they were experimenting with.

Brilliant photos Tobe,
If we took some black and white photos at ponty, you’d hardly tell the difference.
