    Default US picture source

    http://www.defenseimagery.mil/index.html

    US DoD site containing still, motion and multimedia imagery

    The majority of the pictures on here appear to be in the public domain. Just a sample of what you can find pictures of ;

    Airfield lighting
    Runways
    Airfields
    Control towers (Wittering from the 80's would seem to be a rarity)

    Normal file upload provides huge files 2 to 3 Mb, but you can request smaller versions.

    Canmore have come up trumps again. They have just added the 1988 survey of Scotland here

    http://aerial.rcahms.gov.uk/worldwide/Scotland.php

    Best of all you can download GE KML file for each area to get the locations. For a few pounds you can view images at slightly better magnification and some allow sectional zoom.
    Hats of to the people who run the Canmore sites, this has got to be one of the best, if not the best overall historical reference sites.

    Yes, CANMORE is leading the way in UK; let's hope the TNA will come up with such access. Ha! Ha! With the recent budget announcements I expect things to get worse not better.

    I fear for all the research services as the 25% cuts start to happen!

    I notice the Landmap streaming viewer site appears to have vanished.

    Damn!

    Quite! I think it has been "developed" and is only available to Universities etc. They did post a note about a new version coming out this year. Still I suspect I got my monies worth.
