PARENT CATEGORYYou are looking at a collection of aviation photos that I have been taking over the last few decades. You may have noticed however, that there has been little activity here of late, since the requirement to reduce the size of each photograph is too time-consuming. My latest efforts you will find on Flickr under hayling_billy.

I currently use a Nikon D750 with a Nikkor 24-120 and a Nikon 70-300. I also have older Nikon 7200 which took over from a D90.

Copyright of all photos is mine, with or without copyright note, so please take note, and contact me for any requirements at atb1943(at)

The site does not allow any input or registration. When I tried that it opened up the floodgates for all sorts of ads and other rubbish.
If you are interested in railways (mainly German), you might like to visit too, but again, the more recent stuff is on flickr. I can be contacted at atb1943(at)

Thank you for your interest and I hope you enjoy my efforts!
