Re: Warbird Workshop Yesterday TV

I can't say I noticed picture quality was an issue. I was watching on Freesat though and not Sky. Keep your eyes peeled in Episode 2 for yours truly.

Those C-47's probably have the parts we're desperate to find to complete the restoration of our C-47.

Hi phantom6. Thanks for letting me know.

I have changed the host from Google Photos, as that seems to be the reason.

Can you see the images now?

Lowepro nature trekker II camera rucksack

Lowepro nature trekker II rucksack. Used and some foam partitions are missing but no tears and all zips work. It's one large solid rucksack which served me well for years. I used to carry two camera bodies, one 300mm f2.8, a 70-200mm f4 and a 24-105mm f4 in the rucksack. https://image.ibb.co/j8fHCR/...
