  1. Dear, I'm just asking me what are the regulations in regard to the copyright for photographies taken by soldiers during their military service. I mean, i've read on some places : "this image is a work of a US Army soldier or employee, taken or made as part of that person's official duties. As a work of the US federal government, the image is in the public domain". Or "This work is in the public domain in the United States because it is a work prepared by an officer or employee of the United States Government as part of that person's official duties under the terms of Title 17, chapter 1, section 105 of the US Code. Note : this only applies to original works of the Federal Government and not to the work of any individual US state, territoryw commonwealth, country, municipality, or any other subdivision." Does that mean that an author can reuse photographies taken by a soldier during his service oversea without infraction to the copyright (thus, he still have to mention the source) ? Thanks for your advies ! P-E
  2. I didn't know this story, but here're some pictures (showing the C47s) I took during the commemoration in Normandy that year... Having a good 600mm camera helps for long range shots
  3. In my opinion, they are fakes, made from DBDU cover used with PASGT-Vest.
  4. I recently purchased this coat that suscited my curiosity. Does anyone here know what's the "Fleet Intro Team" ? I found that online : Initial Operational Test and Evaluation reports E-2D Advanced Hawkeye ready for full-rate production The E-2D Advanced Hawkeye is ready for full-rate production. Air Test and Evaluation Squadron (VX) 1 tested the aircraft for ten months during the Initial Operational Test and Evaluation (IOT&E) period. The IOT&E report aided the Defense Acquisition Board in making their full-rate production decision in January. (U.S. Navy photo) Feb 8, 2013 NAVAL AIR SYSTEMS COMMAND, PATUXENT RIVER, Md. — Air Test and Evaluation Squadron (VX) 1 declared the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye “suitable and effective” in an Initial Operational Test and Evaluation (IOT&E) report, aiding the Defense Acquisition Board in approving the aircraft for full-rate production in January. “This milestone is the culmination of years of hard work,” said Capt. John S. Lemmon, E-2/C-2 Airborne Tactical Data System Program Office (PMA-231) program manager. “The E-2D team came together with one vision and goal, and the IOT&E report confirms that we are delivering a solid product to the fleet.” During IOT&E, VX-1 tested the E-2D to determine how well the aircraft could perform required missions and evaluated the aircraft’s readiness for fleet introduction scheduled for 2015. IOT&E was conducted according to current program System Design Development (SDD) requirements. During testing, VX-1 deployed to several locations to collect flight test data. Tests were held at Naval Air Station Fallon, Nev. VX-1 participated in aerial combat training exercises at Nellis Air Force Base during Red Flag, as well as the Black Dart exercise at Naval Air Station Point Mugu. Black Dart is designed to test the military’s ability to counter enemy unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). ”We tested the E-2D in mountainous terrain near Nellis Air Force Base and elsewhere throughout the country and the aircraft performed phenomenally,” said Lt. Cmdr. Gregory Harkins, VX-1 operational test director. Harkins also said testing showed an increase in combat effectiveness due to the E-2D’s ability to track small fighter size targets in difficult environments. The data showed significant improvements in radar and mission systems performance in overland and littoral scenarios. “As we push towards fleet introduction, our program office team stays passionate about our work and committed to the mission,” Lemmon said. “We genuinely care about what we do and the product we are delivering to the fleet.” Initial operational capability (IOC) for the E-2D is planned for 2015.
