Excellent pics, thanks for sharing. Good looking planes, they always look fast and nimble, even when stood still.

Always a highlight when Sven posts some more top pictures. Given the time period, the subjects and the quality of the pics I would be very interested in buying books using his material.

How about it Sven?

Thanks for posting, R

I've considered it, but my discussions with others with similar collections claim the market is rather narrow and soft for such publications unless a highly focused theme can tie the images together.

oh come on!!! I have just finished one on Japanese Starfighters and about to be published via Blurb in a month or so (great plug eh? 🙂 )

 

It was good fun creating it if you have enough time and some great pictures, which you do
