Slide Info and Tips

The Original slide lists are split between Military and Civil and most of the slides for sale are single examples. In most cases the slide frames have data written on them relating to the subject. Prices start from just £1 (with a £5 order minimum) and our catalogue covers all aspects of aviation from the 1960s right up to the present day.

You can either browse our military and civil catalogues (see links below) or use the search function to find what you want. If searching please remember to include the word "slide" in any search so that your results will only include original slides and not itmes from our photo list. So if you are searching for F-16s simply search "F-16 slide" and you will be presented with a list of all out F-16 slides for sale.

The information listed is as follows -
    1) Slide number - please quote this in any correspondence
    2) Aircraft details - ie serial/registration, aircraft type, owner/markings, year taken.
    3) Slide quality - this is a number between "1" and "5" , with "1" being the highest quality and "5" the poorest. The level of quality is decided on the overall slide taking into account lighting, position, sharpness, clutter and any     blemishes/scratches on the actual slide. 
    4) Price - this is the price set for that slide and is based upon "3" above and also the rarity value of the  subject. As most of the slides on sale are single copies, the price quoted is not negotiable.

In addition to the price per slide you have to add postage (minimum value quoted)) of £1 (UK), £4.00 (EEC) and £5.00 (elsewhere).
We are also happy to send your order insured/tracked for an additional fee - please ask for details.

Photo Info & Tips

The following are some helpful facts and information on how to get the most out of the web site -

1) Prints - We do two sizes of prints in Black and White and Colour (all glossy finish without borders) - 15 x 10cm/6 x 4" at £1 each and 19 x 12.5cm/7.5 x 5" at £1.30 each.
2) There is a minimum order value of £5 - so if you only want one print it is worth looking for 4 more 15x10cm prints as it will cost you the same.
3) Postage is charged on top of the print costs - there is a minimum postage charge of UK £1, Europe £4 and Elsewhere £5. Over a  certain value this increases on a sliding scale (see the order calculations for details).

The collection is broken into a number of sections -

Black & White  -   Civil, British Military, Foreign Military, US Military, Real Photos (pre 1945)
Colour  -   Civil, British Military, Foreign Military, US Military
and the Search function will search on any registration/serial, aircraft type or unit/airline/owner you wish to enter.

The most accurate search is to use a registration/serial (eg G-AOSL or TG500). For USAF/Army you need to use the Fiscal Year as part of the search (eg 65-0014).
If you are searching for a type use the type name or designation for the greatest coverage (eg Meteor or F-111 will give you every item) or for further detail add sub types (eg Meteor F.8 or EF-111A).

One word of caution, C-47 and C-54 is used for all Dakotas or Skymasters - so if you enter Douglas Dakota you will get nothing whereas Douglas C-47 (or just C-47) will get you thousands.

In addition to the web site databases, we  offer downloads of all the different categories as Excel files or PDFs of the Excel files for easier searching if you have extensive searches to carry out - however, all orders must be placed via the web site.
