Ralf Manteufel's Superb Berlin Photos

Mon Jul 02, 2007 5:28 am

I am sure others have seen the superb shots of Berlin Tempelhof and some other German airports in the 1960s. I first came across some of these on the planeboys.de website a few months ago and I was extremely impressed. It's good to see them get a wider audience here. The photos are in many cases spectacular, as aircraft approach low over the airfield boundary; they are also an important and colourful archive of the Cold War era, now thankfully behind us. Congratulations!

I thought about starting this topic since I saw the first row of pics uploaded but simply was too lazy. Over 250 pics accepted in less than two months must be an acceptance ratio of almost 100%  Wow!  Wow!  Wow!
No need to mention his great and rare motives.

I also want to add my thanks to Ralf for sharing his photos with us. Not forgetting all the other contributors who took the time to record our aviation history and then upload them here for all to enjoy. I salute you all  champagne   bigthumbsup 
Exactly how long is a drastic measure?

Indeed, we are lucky to have him. You can thank a certain headscreener for that and it's not me Smile

It seems Ralf has a friend (I suppose?), Peter Seemann, who also recently started uploading his collection. Amazing stuff. A Pan Am 747 at Berlin Tempelhof. And I thought Tempelhof runways were short...  Smile

Absolutely wonderful classic photographs. Thanks to Ralf for taking them then, and for scanning and uploading them now.

A special thanks on my part as well to the Berlin spotting pair Manteufel and Seemann, their collection is most pleasing to the eyes! I enjoy the C-97 shots especially.
I hope more is on the way.
I dont know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone
