    In the Google Earth application, use the Transparency slider at the bottom of the 'Places' panel to view the underlying satellite imagery.

    Folks: the 8th Air Force Historical Society now hosts my 8th AF database (and attendant files). I just updated the links to the above GE overlays - sorry! They should all work now.

    Quick question....

    Where do you get the overlay image? I'd like to do one of RAF Bradwell Bay but I wouldn't know where to start!

    Ah, there's the rub, Paul! I got most of mine from AIXers and Freeman's 8th Air Force books. A couple from various websites, etc. Put on your sleuthing duds and get to work!

    Tommy i have gone to the 8th AF Historical Society to look at the Airfield Overlays but i don't seem to be able to find them. Do i need to go to a certain area of the website to access them?
