      PhotoBucket are no longer permitting 3rd party hosting   01/07/17

      As most of you are now painfully aware, Photobucket (PB) are stopping/have stopped allowing their members to link their accumulated years of photos into forums and the like, which they call 3rd party linking.  You can give them a non-refundable $399 a year to allow links, but I doubt that many will be rushing to take them up on that offer.  If you've previously paid them for the Pro account, it looks like you've got until your renewal to find another place to host your files, but you too will be subject to this ban unless you fork over a lot of cash.   PB seem to be making a concerted move to another type of customer, having been the butt of much displeasure over the years of a constantly worsening user interface, sloth and advertising pop-ups, with the result that they clearly don't give a hoot about the free members anymore.  If you don't have web space included in your internet package, you need to start looking for another photo host, but choose carefully, as some may follow suit and ditch their "free" members at some point.  The lesson there is keep local backups on your hard drive of everything you upload, so you can walk away if the same thing happens.   There's a thread on the subject here, so please use that to curse them, look for solutions or generall grouse about their mental capacity.   Not a nice situation for the forum users that hosted all their photos there, and there will now be a host of useless threads that relied heavily on photos from PB, but as there's not much we can do other than petition for a more equitable solution, I suggest we make the best of what we have and move on.  One thing is for certain.  It won't win them any friends, but they may not care at this point.    Mike.

"By Day and Night" series in Aeroplane Magazine

I read in an older post that there was a series of articles published in Aeroplane Magazine between February and May 1995 covering RAF Interwar bombers.

The series was supposedly similar to the older "On Silver Wings" which later appeared as a book by Osprey.

I know that the Vickers Vildebeest was one of the types covered; what about the rest? Are those issues worth tracking down?

Since I never had the original magazines articles on the fighters (just the Osprey title), do they also have R. Ward's artwork and A. Granger's plans?

TIA

They all had artwork, don't recall plans. The series ran for several years and covered every post war bomber from the DH9/Vimy - usually over two or three parts. Would have made a great book.

Thanks for the replies everyone.

Don't even want to think how much it would cost to buy all those magazines and have them shipped to Greece. :shocked: Oh well, never mind... :crying:
