I am an Australian aviation enthusiast who also works within the aviation industry - at Sydney Airport when I first joined the Wikipedia community (hence my user name, the International Civil Aviation Organization airport identification code for Sydney Airport is YSSY) - in the field of aircraft maintenance.

Articles[edit]

Articles created[edit]

I have created twenty-seven articles so far, fifteen dealing with aspects of the Australian aviation industry:

Significant contributions[edit]

Some (but not all) of the articles dealing with aspects of Australian aviation that I have edited were almost non-existent as far as content was concerned. While not creating them, I consider that I have made a very large contribution to these articles:

Edits[edit]

In the first year-or-so after registering an account in July 2007, my editing tended to be of the "one-massive-edit" school (for example this expansion of the de Havilland Australia article and this edit to the Ryan ST article) rather than the "make-lots-of-small edits" variety but nowadays I don't have the time to spend several hours working on one article. As a result of having less time to spend, I now usually make small edits to articles, often to fix typographical errors and spelling mistakes; as of May 2014, about 2,500 of my 15,000 edits have been such edits, including changing "aircrafts" to "aircraft" more than 500 times. I also find that I make a lot of edits when curiosity dictates that I follow the wikilinks to wherever they go; for example I made this edit then clicked on a wikilink in the article, which led to this edit, then on to another linked article and these edits, then another article and another edit - and lo and behold: more than two hours passes by. My initial "big-change" edit style and my more recent "edit-and-move-on" style have resulted in an overall average of well under two edits per page. However having said that, as of May 2014 I have made almost 300 edits to the Qantas article; more than 150 edits to the Virgin Australia article; and almost 250 edits - mostly small fixes and copyedits - to the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 article (including 170 edits in the space of a week-and-a-half); and my "Top Ten" articles-by-number-of-edits account for thirteen hundred of my 15,000 edits made.

Aircraft, airlines and journeys[edit]

My images[edit]

I have been taking photographs of aircraft for almost 30 years and have a reasonably large collection (believe me when I say there are people out there with much bigger collections than mine); I estimate that it is about 30,000 photos, of which about two thirds are digital images - the rest were taken on colour film. I still prefer film, but I have to admit that digital images are easier to work with; I sometimes take a photo of an aircraft with my film camera then take a digital photo as well. The images I have uploaded for use in articles are below.
