Royal Egyptian Air Force Halifax and more

Have spent several days scanning negs from the back catalogue, that is, negatives that were catalogued before I went digital. Amongst those to be scanned were several Halifaxes including G-ALVJ.

Now Photoshop is a wonderful tool capable of revealing detail that couldn’t be seen using the enlarger. In this case it revealed a four digit number above the RAF serial RT852 and a bit of sleuthing identified this as 1155 of the Royal Egyptian Air Force. G-ALVJ was the ferry registration allocated when she was purchased from the Air Ministry by Freddie Laker’s Aviation Traders.

The other scans included 15 KC-97s. Nice to get to do a bunch of four prop heavies.
