Looking for pictures of 50 Squadron Hampden's and 97 Squadron Lancaster's, all contributions gratefully received. I am researching the experiences of my father who served with both of these squadrons.
Looking forward in anticipation of results. Thanks, D.

These are vidcaps from a DVD I got the other day that included an intro film made at Wright Field for wannabe test pilots when they started school. The sequence was a pan from nose to tail. The aircraft was at Wright (before it was renamed) and the only jet on the field that was in the film was a P-59. The sample test flights shown were in P-39s and P-51s primarily and the date range for the films on the DVD is 1944-1958 but there are no dates in the film itself so I can't precisely date it. My guess would be postwar '40s.

Hope they help. You might be able to get them to line up well enough to photoshop them into a panorama. I haven't had time to try it yet. If nothing else, you can get a good look at the forward right side of the fuselage.

I made myself too curious by mentioning it so I did a q&d photomerge and combined 1,2,3, and 5 into one pic. It didn't turn out too badly as far as giving you a look at the whole side.

I resized the pic because I didn't know if it would automatically resize or not - the original is fairly large - and I didn't want the mods unhappy with me.

If you want the original let me know and I'll email it to you. It's about half a meg or so.

I have some photos of some of the aeroplanes at Hendon, including close up detail pix of the Spitfire 1a V and the Stranraer as well as a few others. If any one wants to share these I am quite willing to email them to them.

Hi,Have just been trying to find a photo of the old "Handley Page Hampden",My wifes Dad was a Flgt/Sgnt Wog or was it Wag.With the RNZAF after training in Canada.He was stationed at Turnberry Scotland training in a "Hampden" to be used as a Torpedo Bomber.Unfortunately after a training mission,they were about to land with two other "Hampdens" when they came into a thick mist on their side of the runway.The Pilot had to go around again and slammed into a Hill just out of Turnberry,all the crew being killed.I am new to the site and haven't been able to find a "Hampden,Forgive me if I have missed it.Thoroughly enjoying you site,having been in Liverpool during the war.Sitting on top of and Air Raid Shelter with my mate,in a couple of old deck chairs Great till a 3.7 Anti Aircraft gun and Mobile searchlight decide to do some shooting and Lighting about 100 yards away from us.Even at 11 we knew the meaning of discretion before valour.A few nights later all the back yards were full of M/C gun bullets and on top of the shelters.Best Regards Ken B

I am looking for photo and/or information on a Pacific Theatre B-17 nicknamed "Knucklehead". If you can post a photo ... great! I missed an earlier opportunity to get a ground photo of the plane with flight crew. Any assistance would be appreciated!

Thanks.

Hi guy,

it's the first time I post in this forum, I'm really amazed from your ability in finding rare images.
I'll be very pleased if you could help me in a difficult task (for me but certainly not for you), I'm looking for fuselage and wingroot gunbay photos and drawings of the FW190 A6.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Adaing -- I did some quick checking and don't see that there was any difference between A-4 and A-6 fuselages and wing root gun bays (please let me know if I'm wrong). If indeed there was not and you can use A-5 references, I live just up the road from an airworthy example and can get close-up shots of just about anything other than the cockpit. Let me know!
