Those EPA pics are wonderful - nice to see the Heralds in those colours.
Any dates for the photos?

Evansb's Soviet Catalina

If you took the trouble to post it, you might appreciate the stories at Red Star Catalinas.

The destinies of aircraft can be as weird as those of pedestrians.

But I'm curious: have you any details of the when/why/where behind this pic?

Edmonton Municipal Airport, circa 1960s. Earlier this week, the City of Edmonton announced plans to close the airport. The airport is one of North America's earliest municipally operated airports. Wiley Post chose the field as a stop-over on his "Around-the-World Flight".

If you click you'll be able to see the difference between your link and mine. ie Where you've been going wrong.

You may have to click this button (top right corner of editing panel) to switch editing modes in order to see the details of the link.

Sabre at Amman 1955


OK thanks back to the drawing board



Link fixed.

On your Photobucket page there's a panel called 'Share this image'
One of the options is 'IMG Code'
  • Copy the entire contents of that box. It starts with [img]
  • Paste it into your post.
  • Add text.
  • Press submit.
Your photo will appear.
