United Kingdom

      Well hello!

    I'm Ian Ellington, a keen aircraft photographer from the north east of the UK! I started taking photos in the late 70's with a instamatic camera but moved quickly onto SLR's with a Zenith E in 1979, I then settled with a Cannon SLR mid 80's of which I've had several up to the present day! I started prints but moved onto slides in 1991, eventually starting the digital era in late 2003! I have a keen interest in the older types of transport aircraft but unfortunately not many visit my local airport (Durham Tees Valley) "better known now as Teesside'  

     I am currently scanning all of my negatives/prints & slides from my collection, with the aim being to try and get all of my collection digitalized!

        I also have a keen interest in Radio Controlled model aircraft and have several which I fly on a regular basis at my local club.

    Anyway here's some shots taken from over the years from my collection.  Any Comments, or if I can be of any help then please feel free to contact me on propsmoke@googlemail.com
