My front room is my hangar
I think I must be just about the only pilot in the world who has his aeroplane in his front room!
Paul Dewhurst asked if I sit in it watching TV?
Actually, the front room has always been a bit of a box-room. You just ask girlfriends to close their eyes walking through it. I keep my bike and cycle-trailer in there and use the room to dry-store parts for my van restoration. In the past I have used it as a dry place to tinker with motorbikes, so it really is the perfect place to store the trike - made possible by having that retracting undercarriage, so that it will go through the door.
I don't watch TV sitting in it, but I will admit to sitting in it daydreaming of flight.
