Every cloud has a silver lining and I guess these guys were glad to break through. Another in the present series of Vintage Air Transport - the venerable Junkers 52 - affectionately known as 'Tante Ju' or 'Iron Annie' by thousands of Luftwaffe crews. Close on 5,000 were built and they served in the most arduous of conditions in all combat areas in WW2 - most spectacularly in the paratroop assault on Crete and the attempted air re-supply of Stalingrad. Three were still in service with the Swiss Air Force until the 1980's.
Have been interested in photography since just after WW2, when film became freely available again, using Kodak Autographic equipment. Graduated, in the 50's, to 35mm and was involved in photographic work during my 17 yrs as RAF aircrew - navigator. Since retirement and migrating to Canon digital equipment have been involved with two of my sons and one grandson in a considerable amount of photographic activity, particularly composite images. Now producing digital art prints with the major emphasis on classic warbird aviation.
