After having started this website by the end of 2000, I found it useful to keep track of the changes; the initial start contained 4 pages on the Douglas DC-3, one each on the DC-4 and DC-6 and one on the Curtiss C-46 Commando. Plus two text pages with general background information on the C-46 and the DC-6. Soon followed by The Lockheed Constellation with one page and a visit (my first dedicated propliner visit abroad) to Sharjah ( 2 pages, on the Antonov An-8/An-12 and Ilyushin Il-18).
Later the TRAVEL Pages were added and indeed, a Blog.
And the rest, they say: is history!
2000 - 2010, and counting...
In 2013 I started a series of photo albums on Blurb.com, named '36Exp'(36 Exposures, a reference to the exposures on most common rolls of film: 12, 24 & 36.). The books can be ordered directly from the Blurb.com website.
Most subjects, if not all, will be on non-aviation subjects:
