This is the reason I first started looking at a.net back in the days, for rarities like this. This is real aircraft photography right here, cheers! -Mario R.

I agree with Mario. Although there are still some great vintage collections still at airliners.net, some superb collections are now gone. John P. Stuart’s collection comes to mind. Stuart’s collection had rare stuff not seen anywhere in the web. But, those images were removed from a.net for some reason. Must of the new stuff doesn’t have the character and value that vintage ones have.
