Back in 2013 there was no website dedicated to spotting at Bristol Airport and during a lightbulb moment BAS was born, from a basic website and social media presence it has grown to what it is today with hundreds of members and followers and the website receiving thousands of hits a month and has become one of the best spotting websites in the UK. I continue to develop and expand the website as well as plan events to interact with members and join in on discussions and photo submissions.

My main role is to keep the website and Facebook page up-to-date with the latest information for our community. I check the airport schedule to see if there are any rare visitors arriving and update our rare database and social media pages. You can pop me an email on callum(at) if you have any questions, or send a message to our Facebook page.

Martyn joined the team in early 2016 to assist with the running of the website, social media and events. Using his years of aviation experience and one of the key areas Martyn was working on was the ID card scheme that we will be rolling out later in 2016. Unfortunately Martyn passed away in hospital on the 3rd October 2016. We will continue the ID Card scheme as his legacy.
