Response to Detour! I just got your "Before Centuries"-

Thanks for your comment! This book was a labor of love that extended over forty years in accumulating the images. When I first approached the publisher,
he wanted to run most of the color ones in living B&W! Told him that I did not
spend all that money for first generation dupe slides to see them run in B&W so
made a deal with him to put some of my own money into it and no royalties. He
agreed and what you see is the result. Was working on USAFE CENTURIES and he
went under so that died. Oh, well. How else to share these jewels with the
folks? To this day, drool more over a slide taken in the fifties of any USAF
or ANG aircraft than any type in service today. Much more colorful, even some
of the base flight hacks like C-47s, L-20s, and T-33s! Glad I got to serve from 55-77, surviving both the Cold and Viet Nam Wars. We won one of them
anyway................. cheers
