    Hi mate,

    Thanks for your comments. I have many more on my site (see the link above). They were all copied a few years ago on a Nikon Coolscan VED and edited with PS2. The original film was either K25 or K64, taken on Olympus OM1n.

    Glad you liked the pic's again Mike and it was a sight to see the skyraider wizzing about low level at barton and viewing the machine at eye level from the control tower.I too would loved to have seen a javelin fly and feel in this climate the future in aviation for the enthusiast will be in looking to the past as if we don't air shows will be all that much poorer for not doing so.

    The pictures remain good. And your Dutch is on a 17 century level and today known as "Afrikaans" if i am not mistaken. But keep practising!

    Hi Blue_2..Cheers and yes all looks like all systems go with "MrMcHenry" about to go out on a sortie from Lossiemouth in 91ish I think.I was lucky enough to have been given an opportunity to fly with them that day which was sadly cut short by a fuel leak and headed back asap to the airfield to be greeted with some fire engines which were now highlighting the seriousness of this event should a stray spark rewrite the events of the day..

    The sound of the supercharged griffons is magic to the ears and by all accounts the last flight was made in 2007 in America."Where's my violin"Ha,ha.

    The" Bone" was a treat as-well to witness close at hand and the way it got its nickname still makes me laugh.Some lady documenting the aircraft in its early days must have been thinking about things from the night before and typed in B.1 as B,one instead.Maybe she was related to that lady who was confused about the" offside rule"ha,ha just jokingCheers....JB

    Yep sadly 790 is on static at Pima now.

    I wonder if a B-1b for Waddington this year is too much to hope for...?

    Yes a B.1 would pull the crowds at Waddo,guess we'll all just have to wait and see what happens in the fat controllers "office of funds".Some more from the past....

    Some nice scans there. I from experience know it is not easy getting good quality scans from 35mm film shots. You have done a good job - well done.

    Thanks for looking and yes that gnat was different and showed me they can paint new scheme's on planes just like cars Mike.Thanks for the compliment Richard on the copies and as I just looked at both your sites I know from the standard of your copies(good) you understand the malarky involved.

    By the way the lancaster with engines running night shot is brilliantSo well taken.I will check your site out for updates in the future.In the mean time good luck with the shows and your copying...Cheers..John.B

    Just mind-blowing scans!! I'd liked to have seen that R/C Lanc in the air as well..........

    Hi to Blue_2 and Sky high....Good of you both to look in again and and respond in a positive way in return.As for the Large Lanc., model it was as good as you might imagine it to be with a safety pre caution with it because of its size that it could only be used on certain sites,proper runways and large airfield sites.

    I did get one of it flying but its in a shoe box along with a few thousand others waiting to be sorted.Anyway keep looking and I'll stick some more up and these could range from anything upwards from interesting cars caught on site to people and planes.I do this because its not just the flying attractions that make the shows but some of the other miscellaneous things seen through a viewfinder make up just as interesting a photo,I think anyway.

    Loads of people come away from shows with all sorts of thoughts and feelings about what they've seen and experienced and I in a vain attempt try and look out for these things.Cheers..John.B

    Not in vain!! You have succeeded in bucket loads and I really look forward to some more from the "shoe-box".

    One of my biggest sorrows - most of the aviation slides "lost" in a house move a few years back, added to the rest previously stolen!!!! So I have to rely on you lot to rekindle all those great memories.

    Hi Sky High and Blue_2 ....Sorry to hear of the loss of the slides but at best most of my shows were taken in the 90s with a couple in the late 80s.Anyways like I say just check now and again for some more copies.

    Thats the spirit Blue_2,dont matter at first what they come out like just send them in.I'm just obsessional about doing my slides as best as I can because the gizmo I bought is a bit on the cheap side and I wont let the thing get the better of me.I'm probably half way to being a potty old B*****d

    A few more which were made with the help also of someone with a better scanner than mine which also goes to prove the sage old theory of," you only gets what you pay for". )

    Superb! Especially love the Hunter and Canberra, but then they are my period! Always wanted the balsa model Hunter to turn out like that but never managed it.....

    Hello again to Anna and Sky High....Sounds like you've been ski-ing Anna so take care on them vertical props and try and keep the gluvine level as you bend ze knees picking up the glass.Take care.

    Born in the 50s they are mine as well Sky-high and only regret not having been interested in a camera until the late 80s.The memory though wont let me forget the site of a young pilot put his hunter in the vertical for a spectacular zoom climb at one of R.A.F Acklingtons B.o.B days back in 66/67 so although no one else can see it I can replay this moment any time I like.

    I remember them packs of balsa and the kits with plans like yesterday and like yourself had a fantastic image in my head of the finished model but mostly it was dragged up to the top of the garden and set alight as it was such a mess.
