The following are some helpful facts and information on how to get the most out of the web site -
1) Prints - We do two sizes of prints in Black and White and Colour (all glossy finish without borders) - 15 x 10cm/6 x 4" at £1/1- each and 19 x 12.5cm/7.5 x 5" at £1.50 each.
2) There is a minimum order value of £5 - so if you only want one print it is worth looking for 4 more 15x10cm prints as it will cost you the same.
3) Postage is charged on top of the print costs - there is a minimum postage charge of UK £2, Europe £5 and Elsewhere £6. Over a certain value this increases on a sliding scale and will be quoted on receipt of an order.

The collection is broken into a number of sections -
Black & White - Civil, British Military, Foreign Military, US Military, Real Photos (pre 1945)
Colour - Civil, British Military, Foreign Military, US Military
The most accurate search is to use a registration/serial (eg G-AOSL or TG500). For USAF/Army you need to use the Fiscal Year as part of the search (eg 65-0014).
If you are searching for a type use the type name or designation for the greatest coverage (eg Meteor or F-111 will give you every item) or for further detail add sub types (eg Meteor F.8 or EF-111A).

D = darker image than normal
* = lower quality image than normal
@ = aircraft is moving in the image
A-A = air to air image
$ = aircraft wears mission markings
One word of caution, C-47 and C-54 is used for all Dakotas or Skymasters - so if you enter Douglas Dakota you will get nothing whereas Douglas C-47 (or just C-47) will get you thousands.
