First, I will give a brief background (it could be really long, but I am not up to writing so much)
My grandfather spent his life in the aviation industry, working for airlines, and eventually becoming a professor. Eventually, his influence hit me, and we found our bond, aviation. That bond lasted a very short time as he passed on less than two years after I discovered my love for aviation. When going through some of his "stuff," I found a few photos that he took of planes such as (I think) the DC-3 in the late-60's to early-70's.
Now my question:
Unfortunately, I have misplaced the pics as of now, but I intend on searching for them for a while this coming week. They are smaller than most common pictures today, but still of some quality, especially considering the time that they have been around. If I do find them, I would like to scan and upload them as a tribute to him, but, obviously, I don't have his permission. I would be relying on the written info on the back of each pic to tell me what is in the pic and where it was taken.
Am I allowed to do this, or would it still be considered a copyright violation?
Thanks for your answers,
