Guess Who's Back... Graf Zeppelin's Lockdown Blues: Keflavik

Post by Ruislip Rustler »

After some rest and recuperation, I've been pestered to add some more of Phil's pictures to stop you all going stir crazy at home.

So, here we go with a selection of pics from a not-so-sunny Keflavik taken on 15 August 1973. Not his usual blue sky pictures, but probably fitting for the mood of many of the country these days!

Image
53-0554 - Lockheed EC-121T Warning Star - 552 Airborne Warning and Control Wing - NAS Keflavik - 15 August 1973 (a real pain to get this one looking anything like decent, but noteworthy as its the one most people have probably seen, being the EC-121 preserved at Pima Air and Space Museum)

A great selection - thank you. I do like the Warning Stars and also the Herc in that colour scheme brings back memories.

It was a real struggle to get decent photos that day using good old 25 ASA Kodachrome II
Cheers Phil

Really enjoy looking at USAF items from the 70's and 80's.

Thanks for sharing.

Love the H-3, challenging stuff to scan with KR25 on a dull day.

Hi Alan,

These were a "challenge" I think it's safe to say! Committed to purchasing the Vuescan software in the end and it works a treat it has to be said (Although it doesn't work with Flextight scanners!) - just need to re-scan everything of Phil's I've done previously and bring them up to speed now!!
