All originally taken with my Exa IIb.

I think these were about 1964, the Mini in the foreground of no.1 has a reg. with a B suffix.

Copied with K5, 50mm f1.7M, Pentax Auto Bellows M with slide copier attachment.
Mirror-up, Remote F.

ISO 200.

Elements 11.




Hope you like them / find them interesting.

(Good fun fiddling around with FP3 negs found in the loft, getting ready to move house!)

The more I look, the more there is to see!

Love them!
The cargo plane is amazing, that and the Aeroflot CCCP (USSR) plane.
Sure my sons will love these...

Great shots from a bygone era.

The Russian Aeroflot airliner is a Tupolev TU-104 and the cargo plane is a BEA Argosy
made by Armstrong Whitworth. Also an Iberia Caravelle (made in France) and the lovely Vickers Viscount (Cambrian and BEA) was widely used in those days. Also seems to be a Vickers Vanguard and a Britannia or two.

Have you got any more to show!
