You mean just like how Trump knows more about ISIS than all the generals do??

Sorry, I couldn't resist!!

I really like these photos you post that are black and white and the perfectly aged color photos from the late 70s and early 80s when I was a little kid fascinated with aircraft.

The Heathrow shot is great Sal. How much have things changed in 51 years!! Can you believe it is that long ago??!! A perfect picture for volume two of Adrians book.
