Waddington from above

Postby Xplumberlives » Fri Apr 20, 2012 8:07 pm

Many years ago I flew from RAF St. Mawgan to RAF Leeming for an overnight stop, we passed over RAF Waddington and some of the Vulcan fleet. Unfortunately the passage of time has not been kind to the images!

Oh YES, I've kept every negative I've ever taken, one day I may get around to sorting them out! :-o :-o :-o

Same here :D boxes and boxes of negs......

just thought that a reprint could be a good idea, amazing how a good photo place can rescue old negs ! Or even the old print, sometimes.

Yes indeed, just that the prospect of sorting through over a hundred thousand negatives doesn't seem very appealing! ;)
