Just the dreaded red " X " here. Could you please try reposting the image again?

Hi Bill,

isn't it odd that I struggle to view your images both here and on the Balsa site but most other peoples stuff I can view?

Must be an Apple thing.

Just caught this. Must be an Apple or maybe Kodak thing. Apple may think there is something suspicious, as I hear there are corrupt file photos on the web. The photos are JPEGs, but saved to JPEG format with the Kodak camera software. There's a number of these odd file problems like this that I've come across, such as YouTube suddenly saying they don't recognize my video format but will try to process, where these videos were saved again from the same Kodak software into a movie format that they say is acceptable. So far they have still been viewable, but someday I'll probably have a problem.
BTW, been building any balsa models lately? I'm working on a tiny Fairchild 24 at the moment.

Here's the photo saved to JPEG from MS Picture Manager, although it was initially saved in the Kodak program.

Hi Bill,

my Apple's gone off for repairs sso I'm using an old Packard Bell laptop at the moment. And would you believe it, I still get the dreaded red cross's again!

Not started the Beaver build yet, that'll only start in the winter months.

Interesting, I'll have to figure out why others can't view the photos. Still views fine here.

A couple of Beaver shots, linked by a common aircraft. The first is taken at the Biscarrosse event last month and shows LN-NCC on the ramp of the old trans-Atlantic flying boat base at Hourtiquets...

The second shows N610LC a few days later at Reykjavik for Icelandair's 75th anniversary celebrations. Again, a certain flying boat lurks in the background!

Very nice David.
Amazing how that Big White Airplane is always in the background. LOL
