Hey Dartmoor Dave, about the vignetting in that lovely photo of yours, this was a "feature" common to photos I took with my much-loved Vivitar S1 28-90. It happens with that lens when set to its widest setting at wide open apertures. Once stopped down a bit, the vignetting disappears. I just ignored it, it didn't really bother me, but it was there, and when I saw your photo, that was the first thing I thought of. Do you recall the lens you were using? Also, with some wides, the addition of a filter can cause a similar amount of vignetting.

When Dad was at Penhold, Alberta, teaching on these Harvards. He might even be flying one!

Not nearly as noisy as a Harvard. I think this might be my great-grandfather but not sure yet. You can just make out "Magog Garage" at the back on the right.

Edmonton river valley shot from our apartment in September of 1982. A little straightening and touching up a couple of dust spots. Some vignetting in the corners, did not have a hood for this lens at that time.

I did many overnights in YEG. Have there been big changes since your photo?

Yes, just a few. In this Earth Cam view one of the apartment buildings in the distance across the river valley, seen above the Rogers Place (new Oilers hockey area), was the location I took the photo. There is a webcam on one of the buildings with a similar view, can't seem to find the link at the moment.

The lowest bridge in the foreground near the power plant has recently been replaced.

Were you working there? You seem to be standing on the tarmac.

Yes, I was a pilot with Canadian Pacific at that time, but, just about anyone could access the ramp and aircraft. There were no fences around the airport.

Back in the good old days.

When people could be trusted to make the right decisions about where to be and where not to be.

The DC8 and DC8 Stretch, which for a brief time was the longest airliner in the world. After they were phased out , the B737.

A DC-8-61 was the first airliner I ever rode in. I sat toward the back and it was a long way to the cockpit door which the crew left open during takeoff. Those were the days!

Nowadays the B757-300 has a similar length. They have a steep deck angle (AOA) at cruise. From the blue rooms back to your seat is like climbing a mountain.
