About JDK

James Kightly is a professional writer and journalist covering vintage aviation. He currently writes columns for several magazines and is one of the team running an aviation book publishing company.

Known as 'JDK' on numerous internet forums, some of the writing arising from these discussions, and background or further material relating to these topics will be presented here.

James has written and edited in many other fields as well as aviation. He is always interested in discussing possible commissions.

In the future, a selection of some of the rare and unusual aircraft James has written about will be presented in galleries.
