Excellent scans from prints. Had a look at your Flickr Album too. Great to see these nearly 25 year old shots. :sunglasses:

Thank you. I was taken aback when you said 25 years, I'm sure the 90's were only about 15 years ago! :-)

Nice scans. I love the oddities like the Bobcat and Lodestar. Less said about the Alcyon though.......

Nice additions. Assuming your Alcyon ID. query is for the garish cammo' example, I know of an example (the only in this scheme?) which was around in the US. during the period of your shot.
It would appear to be ex. French AF serial 55 40 (c/n 40) which flew with the displayed registration 'N5540'.

There's a shot of it on the web at Iowa City Municipal Airport dated 24th Aug 1997.

Thanks, Stagger2. On the basis that there can't be 2 Alcyon owners with equally bad taste :-) I'll go with your suggestion!
