    An urgent request. I'm looking for high resolution scans of German jet or rocket powered aircraft for a lecture than I'm preparing for my aerospace engineering class. Can anyone direct me to a Very good archive on the web, or can anyone send me scans?? I've done the typical Google search but the pictures are all low resolution. Need ASAP photos of:
    Heinkel He 178 and He 280
    Messerschmitt Me 262
    Arado Ar 234
    Bachem Ba 349 Natter
    Junkers Ju 287
    Heinkel He 162 Salamander
    Horten jets
    Also need formations of Allied bombers over Germany

    Please note that I want wartime photos, not museum aircraft.
    thanks

    go to stormbirds.com

    armyairforces.com

    for US heavy bombers, you will have to look through threads and sub-links.

    your best bet is books by the way

    Hi Steve,
    I would say something 2500 pixels minimum, or 300dpi if scanning an 8x10 in print....approx.

    There are a ton of axis photos here:

    German Air Force Pictures

    Finding scans of these old photos at that resolution and size are going to be difficult. There are probably some around, but the majority will be smaller.
