Thanks for the info!
My problem > I have a lot of old(from the 50s & 60s) 60x60mm, 60x120mm negs and slides.
I use an "old" Canon-8600 for these:

It is working through thick plexiglass, not bad for "home-use", but...
I decided to buy a new one, but there are no too many scanners on the market with capability for 6x6, 6x12 :(

1962, 6x6 orwo-neg:

The very moment the primary "job" of that guy was > to cover the photo-ops, to check where was the political-officer on the flight-line. One blink to the inlet, one to the flight-line :wink:

Wonderful stuff again! RobertS, what's the story with the ORWO photos? Is that a type of film? It looks really nice. Even with 6X6 negs, commercial development in the States often resulted in grainy images, such as the one below. Only when I resumed developing my own negs did I get the quality that I wanted

Great stuff all! Keep them coming.

Rob, do you by any chance have a good picture of K-3064, which crashed on July 18th, 1972? I happen to know a relative of the pilot who perished in the crash.

ORWO was GDR made film >
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ORWO
It was available everywhere behind the Iron-Curtain, there were no better film on the market in the 70s in WP countries.
ORWO colour slide-films quality was reasonable...b&w negs were more grainy than Western products.
I have many Ilford negs, few Kodak, but most of my collection are on ORWO films.

These are on "Made in USSR" negative, from 1963:

This Soviet film was not so bad, the problem was the variable standard.

Mickey,

Of course, for this very special reason I'll search in my collection slides in the years 1970 - 1972; will come back on this later this week.

Convair F-106A Delta Dart 59-0083 of the 49th FIS at Griffis AFB, NY 4 August 1973

I find it unbelievable that here in the USA we did not preserve one of these Delta Darts in flying
condition as part of the historic flight

Robert, I don't have many overall flightline photos. When I was younger I was always concentrating on individual aircraft. But you are right, they are very interesting photos. For instance, those USAF Grumman SA-16s Albatross' on the line look gray, a c/s more common with the US Navy. I never saw one like that.

This shot may interest you. It's the kind of photo I had in the collection and never appreciated because I was unable to get out on the unit's fightline that day. But, a photo that shows almost an entire squadron of
C-121 Constellations is more interesting today...

Connies are great anytime, anywhere :!:

I like to waist a lot of time on photo sites - to find old albums from pilots, techs.:
