    Hi everyone,

    I have a growing collection of aviation photos and documents collected from various sources over the years. It's mostly Jet Provost/Strikemaster related but there is a lot of other interesting material too. A few people have expressed an interest in seeing what I have and suggested creating an on-line gallery to upload it to. That's fine by me and I'm happy to put the work in but I'm worried that I do not know who took the majority of these photos and what their copyright status is. Is it acceptable to upload these images if I clearly state that they are not mine and that I'm not claiming ownership? This is all sharing for enthusiasts, I'm not selling copies on or anything like that.

    Thanks!
    Moth.

    I think that would be OK. The normal procedure in cases like this is to state the source, or state source unknown.

    some FG associations get mad if you use their photos so just be careful...

    Ok, thanks for that. I'm going to have to show the breadth of my ignorance here and ask what "FG" associations are?

    Home Page:
    I haven't got a clue as to what the FG accosiations are, but here's what I usually do when I find some interesting photos without an obvious source, that I want to share with others:
    First, I state on my home page that the pic source is unknown, and second, I usually write that if you're the copyright holder, please notify me if you want me to either remove the pics because you don't want your pics to be online without your permission, or if you want to be credited for the photos. I'll be happy to do so, please lemme know. Or: That's the gist of it. ;)

    Like the 352nd FG association for example...

    Ah, yes, I see now. I don't think I have anything like that here but I can't be totally sure.

    *nods* Thanks for that. I've put a similar sounding thing on the profile of the account I will use to upload photos too :)

    From what you've described, it doesn't sound like you have anything from WW2 USAAF, judging by Jet Provosts and Strikemasters. The Fighter Group Associations are those for the FGs which served in the USAAF in WW2, and some, after, in the USAF. Similar to our RAF Squadron Associations, or, for instance, Bomber Command Association.
    Maria's (Biker Babe) suggestion is a good one and, basically, as long as it's clear that you are not claiming credit/profit etc, then it should be fine.

    Thanks everyone for your input on this, it's been very helpful. Sure, I'll share a handful of what I have here :) These are raw scans and I've not cleaned them up yet. I think most of what I have is outside of the remit of this forum as my particular interests are the Jet Provosts and Strikemasters and airliners of the 60s onwards. Here is a quick cross-section from my image collection:

    Prototype Folland Gnat:

    Moth :)

    PS. If someone could ID that biplane, I'd be grateful :)

    The biplane is a Tiger Moth. It's possible that the Gnat is in fact the Midge, from which the Gnat evolved.. Nice pics.

    Thanks for the Tiger Moth confirmation.

    I wasn't entirely sure about the Midge or Gnat at first but I managed to research this one. This was the first prototype that became XK724 with the RAF and was used for testing until 1961. It was then used for ground instruction and is now preserved at the RAF Museum in Cosford.
