Hi all

Recently joined this after an invitation from Ray. Yes Motty we both seem to be on the "target list" of the boss here :-)

Anyway. Short introduction. My name is Frank Noort, 42 years old and I live in the Netherlands. Aircraft photography has always been a passion, but since the last few years I start to get more and more enthusiastic about it. This has a lot to do with my camera equimpement, a Canon 1D MkII and 10D plus a nice set of lenses (300 2.8L and 70-200 2.8L), but my interest for photography took a big leap when it became possible to exchange digital images for the web. I do spend a lot of time behind my computer enjoying my pictures!

Some people might know me from my personal website, http://franknoort.nl, others may have heard of me because of my work for http://scramble.nl Both sites do take a lot of my spare time, but the last days i have been doing a lot of work, scanning my old slides.

On to that subject. You might be might be interested in my adventure in the hot desert. In 2000 I made a trip to Jordan and saw some very interesting aircraft there. My newly scanned pictures can be found here: http://www.airfighters.com/photosearch.php?for=192

Just a few teasers to show you the fun of it, more can be found on the link above

Welcome to the site Frank. Great to have you here with the fantastic photos adding some good variety to the database. Most of all, it looks like you had some good fun on those trips.

Here's a couple of my favorites from the latest shots.

A quick lesson here while at it. Notice how I inserted those two small thumbs, automatically linked to the larger version. Well, I did it the quick way. Here is the code below:

Frank used his expertise to link to the large images by doing it the long way, but not everyone is so tech savvy. So, the BBCode for this was created. You will find it under the little blue/tree icon next to the film reel. It looks like this [photoid=#####] It's that easy. Then I used a "center" tag to center them. Not necessary, but it makes it look nice. You can use right, left, or center. Default is left.


This is the oldest I've ever been.
