My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Life is what you make of it.
Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?
A. Punctuality. I'm the sort of person who catches the train before the train before the train I meant to catch, because I hate being late.
Q. What’s your fantasy profession?
Q. What’s your greatest fear?
A. Heights - it might sound crazy (especially as I was a pilot for 21 years) but I'm terrified by heights. The worst bit about flying aircraft was always climbing the ladder to get in - once I was inside, I was fine. I think this was because the height then became more like depth and I was OK with that.
Q. What is your greatest achievement?
A. Surviving my basic flying training course in the RAF.
