Aces High Aviation Gallery

In 1997 we were just two enthusiasts with a passion for aviation and military art and after a chance meeting at an aero jumble we began trading and swapping a few prints. Having both come from marketing backgrounds, working for major corporations that placed great importance on customer service, we felt that, as customers something was lacking in the marketplace. So we decided we should give it a go ourselves and in November 1997 Aces High was born.

In the beginning we sold prints by mail order with a few aero jumbles and air shows thrown in, storing our 'huge' inventory in Colin's downstairs toilet! Then in March 1998 we took the plunge and opened our first Gallery, in Wendover - a tiny loft space in the eaves of a derelict 16th century stable block. There were so many holes in the roof that everywhere you looked there was daylight and there was such a gale blowing through it was like a wind tunnel!
