The plaque was stolen. The one with my name on it. :x

At this point I need to do my occasional reminder to all that these pictures were donated to an organization in NZ after Gary’s death. That doesn’t stop just because so many still think they are free for the taking.

Sounds like something you need to take up with whomever NZ is/are as to why they are in Zane's hands. Isn't Zane Adams one of the WIX moderators?
I'm just posting a link to what's been out there in Flickr world for a while. I'll can the link if it's not OK.

I don’t need to take it up with anyone. I’m just reminding people that these pictures do belong to somebody else, even though I’m certain people are downloading them as fast as they can right now. They will, no doubt, show up soon on various Facebook pages and other flicker accounts soon because they always do. Zane and I have talked about this in the past. He got them off the net before Gary’s photobucket account, which I had just paid to keep running, died a premature death. I sent all the original files and pictures to NZ (the country) as I thought that to be the best place for them.

Brad I'd think that the only thing that people are doing is looking at them, appreciating them, fondly remembering Gary and respecting the fine work that has been done to the CAF's B-24. At least that's what I do. I certainly have no need nor interest in downloading any of them. Their nice to see once again and that's it for me. But I'll take the link down now as I'm also not interested in any drama over it.

Nothing to stress or worry about.

The plaques, I thought there were several on all the guns.
