Dave Gibson


I trained as a pilot initially with the Air Training Corps and eventually became a commercial pilot via the civilian route. I served as an RAF reserve instructor for 15 years as a Flight Lieutenant but I am now partially retired as a flight instructor and examiner at Humberside Airport. I have been interested in Bomber Command from a very early age, really as long as I can remember. One of my relatives served with the RCAF flying Halifaxes from Skipton on Swale during 1944 and 1945 completing 36 operations.


I have served for nearly 40 years as a civil servant and am now partially retired. I have been interested in many aspects of history and I have a special interest in the RAF and Bomber Command, which comes with living in Lincolnshire. I am a qualified pilot and hold a PPL.

Both of us hope to pass on our knowledge and skills to future generations and help to keep the memory of Bomber Command alive.
