Mea Culpa

When I look for images to accompany my blog posts, I rely heavily on Google Images. Sometimes the images have a clear provenance of where they came from, sometimes they don't. While the Internet is very much a free-for-all, sometimes toes get trodden upon.

In The Friday Flyby from the 9th of August I apparently used a couple of photos claimed by the site noted in the image above. A most excellent site, the existence of which I just discovered today. A site I highly recommend. Aces of WW2 has excellent data on the men who flew in WWII, and were experts at it. The aces.

Sometimes you can tell where a photo or image came from, sometimes you can't. Nevertheless my apologies to Aces of WW2. You've got a great website and I would not want to steal your thunder, ever. (Borrow maybe, but only with the proper credit where credit is due!)


  1. I've had the same problem on occasion. Usually, the folks I inadvertently steal stuff from are very gracious :-)

    1. Well so far, just one. And the guy was really cool about it.


Just be polite... that's all I ask. (For Buck)
