  1. ok.. I was hoping I could somehow digitally scan them.., then do a 'reverse' in a photo software to get the 'print' out of them.
  2. I recently acquired close to 80 negative prints.., they look like slides.., larger.., but they have the 'negative' image on them. Anyone know how I can get these scanned into a decent photo?
  3. please visit my two sites. www.330th.org and https://www.flickr.com/photos/330thbg/sets/72157636802029913 Anything you need from here.. let me know and i'll email you higher resolution docs. Good Luck!!

  8. Reading Airshow was absolutely spectacular. Can not complain. They did a wonderful job and have the crowd control, movement, logistics.., etc.. down to a science. Hats off to them!!!! Here is a shot I recreated with my two sons and a PT-13. On the right, is my father (tall skinny guy) which was taken exactly 74 Years prior to the day as his first flight in a PT-13 at Cal-Aero in California. My two young boys were very excited about everything at the show. Great stuff!!!
  9. I recently came across a bunch of photos from my father's time at this Airfield in early 1942. Some interesting things were going on there back in 1942. Dad was here from 23 March - 1 May 1942. Twenty nine Palms Air Academy would begin training around Jan. 1, 1942, to be followed, two weeks later, by a class of 18. Instruction was to last four weeks, and thereafter, classes of 24 each were to be enrolled every two weeks until 126 students had been trained. The training represents the first definite step toward adoption experimentally of the use of gliders in the way motorless planes

  11. Dad received Glider Training at 29 Palms in 1942. He was a powered pilot, but they pulled several hundred pilots to train a massive Glider Force envisioned by Hap Arnold for the Army. https://www.flickr.com/photos/330thbg/sets/72157648242424662 Scroll down into this album a few photos and there is Dad and his TG-2. There were plenty of bombardiers who were once either pilots or being trained as pilots. The USAAF would frequently just take an entire class of pilots and make them gunners or bomardiers.., or what ever else they needed at the time to fill vacancies. Everyone wa
  12.
