Between them, the founders of The Aviation Historian - Nick Stroud and Mick Oakey - amassed 39 years' experience on renowned historic-aviation monthly magazine Aeroplane before its sale to new owners in 2010.
Mick Oakey - Managing Editor
Mick Oakey The son of an RAF wing commander pilot and a former American Overseas Airways stewardess, Mick has been passionate about aviation since early childhood in the 1960s.
In 1979 he became a Ministry of Defence Student Engineer at RAE Farnborough and Bedford, and embarked on an aero-engineering degree course at Imperial College, London; but his predilection for the history and romance of aeronautics led him in 1981 to change direction and become a junior curator at the Royal Air Force Museum, Hendon. Two years later he joined Aeroplane, and in 1998 he succeeded Richard T. Riding as Editor, a post he held until he retired in 2010, after 28 years on the magazine.
He is a member of the Royal Aeronautical Society's Historical Group Committee, and in 2011 he received the Air League's prestigious Scott-Farnie Medal from HRH The Duke of Edinburgh for "most meritorious work in the field of air education" in recognition of his work on Aeroplane. On the odd occasions when he is not absorbed in aviation history, he is absorbed in Egyptology; he is a member of the Egypt Exploration Society and a founder member and committee member of Sussex Egyptology Society, a registered educational charity.
Married to Mick, Lynn has had a career in financial services, working originally for Barclays Bank before moving into the sphere of life assurance.
They have worked with Mick Oakey for 11 years, creating websites for Aeroplane magazine, Sussex Egyptology Society and now The Aviation Historian.

"We have built up several years' experience now", says SES committee spokesman Mick Oakey, "and our tastebuds are finely attuned.
"We always want to do our best for our members and our visiting speakers, and the mince pie tasting is simply an extension of that", says Mick. "The fact that it's also a lot of fun is entirely coincidental".
