These are the aircraft photos I took as a teenager in Singapore in the early 1960′s, plus some taken at Butterworth,  the Naval Base and the Chiang Mai detachment. The best pictures ‘tell a story’ and I hope many of these do. The photos from RAF Changi and Seletar show a unique view of working airfields plus those from Paya Lebar, a civil aviation era now passed.
THIS HOME PAGE IS A SLIDESHOW OF JUST SOME OF MY PICTURES, BUT TAKES A WHILE TO FIRST LOAD THE IMAGES….SO HANG ON THEY ARE COMING!

IF YOU WANT TO SEE ALL MY IMAGES, WITH COMPREHENSIVE DETAILS OF EACH, PLEASE BROWSE THE ‘PHOTO GALLERIES’…..WHICH CONTAIN OVER 900 PHOTOS, CATALOGUED BY YEAR.
