Welcome to the new 'improved' Flight Global Archive page. With the success of the
Archive's first outing into the big wide world, we have improved the 'behind the
scenes' structure of the web page to cater for more frequent image and caption
I would personally like to thank the many people who have sent me emails over
the past few months. All have been positive and I am now glad that through this
new version of the web page I can act upon the extra caption information that many
of you have submitted.
I would like to especially thank correspondence from the following, Dennis Loep,
Michael Lypka, John Price, John Falk (who noticed his grandfather, Bill Thorn, in one
of the images!), Steve Drurey, 'Neil', Mark Price and Danny Hilven.
We are also endeavouring to answer the many requests for images with a series of
new images due to be uploaded shortly. As this is still a part time labour of love, I hope
you will bear with us in both answering your emails and getting the pictures uploaded.
Keith's skill in bringing some of the poorer quality images up to a standard for use and
display never fails to amaze me. You would be surprised at how many images have
been restored, making one seamless image from two halves of a glass plate!
As for my role, I aim to illuminate the captions with a bit of historical significance,
whether it be a personality or aircraft. But, with this new web page, I hope to rid myself
of the trauma that has been the naming of a 'Vickers Victor'.
Thanks for bearing with us, they say great things don't come easily, so please enjoy
the site and come back regularly to see the new images.
