It's sometimes difficult to know how any enhancements we make to the website will go down with readers or users. So it was nice today, when the editor of Flight International , Murdo Morrison, received the following email:
Dear Mr. Morrison,Nice to know that opening up our picture archive is appeciated - it makes Martin and Keith's hard work really worthwhile. Thanks Mr Schubert!
I want to thank you for putting Flight's collection of photos, cutaways and other material online. It is a fine service to aviation in all its guises from the most serious professionals to casual enthusiasts. I subscribed to Both Flight and Av Week for most of my professional career and had occasion to contact your photo archivist, I believe I recall her name was Anne Tilbury, some time in the sixties. She was most helpful to me in finding a photo I needed for a presentation I was doing for Boeing.
Thank you again good sir and kudos to the whole Flight staff.
