About these pages and why I visit and photograph air crash sites.
Contact – it’s always good to hear from the relatives of those involved or people who recall these incidents and can add to the story.
I am very grateful to Jasmine in Queensland, Australia for setting all this up for me back in 2013 when she transferred 5 years of photos and stories from flickr to this site. I wouldn’t have had a clue. Many thanks also to Jay at ProWP.
