The legal profession ran as a common thread between Jim Beasley father and son — but so did flying warbirds
The phenomenon of flying warbirds as a day job once seemed fanciful. Now it’s very much a reality, thanks largely to the rise of training organisations as commercial entities and the passenger rides market. But, for most, it’s still an enjoyable sideline, whether to different forms of piloting, a business career or, subsequently, alternative activities in retirement. There are those who find historic aviation becoming an all-consuming passion, akin to a career in itself; others balance their involvement with varied interests, some quite far-removed.
