hope to get there! I LOVE GARBAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Indeed he did, I once emailed him back in 2001 as I used to always check the latest Miami airports uploads and found a batch of photos he took in Opa Locka of rudders, detached aircraft parts and other junk laying around.. plus some propeller vintage stuff. I guess it bothered me so sift through all of that so I emailed him to stop overloading the site with "junk" lol. I think he replied some of the shots, at least the warbirds had some kind of importance.
Back in 1997, when I started to look at airliner photos on web under the AOL categories, I remember most of the shots said 'AirNikon'. I imagined he was much older since he had so many interesting old-school pictures. I must have a good number of his shots saved in floppy disks.
It's great that he got to do what he loved in his short stay, we're only here temporarily anyways. Hopefully he's now in the good place enjoying how much better it must be!
By the way, anyone knows who's AVIONFOTO? Between them and AirNikon, they had many of the photos that were on the web back then.
