Site News and Updates

 

17/09/2014
Time continues to be in ever short supply when coming to update the website and its many pages. It is taking me longer to respond to emails and Guestbook comments. I really do appreciate the support shown by so many visitors to the website and continue to ask for your patience while I try to find the time to respond.

I recently changed Internet Providers and in the confusion that followed I lost a lot of online stored emails. It seems that the backup files on the computers I use were also deleted. If you have not received any reply from me please can you resend the emails containing updates and images.

Best regards
Mike

More information on earlier losses and ejections have continued to arrive by email. I have had to divert my attention away from them due to major problems with the web page.  These have meant that time has had to be given to re-draft the page. I hope to have it back to its former state in the near future. Please be patient while these changes are sorted,

 

PREVIOUS NEWS

I hope that 2014 will see changes to the web site that will make it easier to navigate. Only time will tell if I make progress with the move to a data driven site that will make recording new losses easier and ensuring updates are added more quickly. At present I haven't found a format that I am happy with.

I am very grateful to everyone who has written to me with extra details, photos and corrections. Your emails are safely stored awaiting me to find time to incorporate them on the site. I know several of you have written to me a long time ago and I ask you to be patient with me as I work through the backlog of updates.

I am working on several major updates -


The F-4 Phantom Losses and Ejections in US Service is taking a lot longer than anticipated -


Tidying the Indian Air Force Losses and Ejections is well under way and some results have already appeared on the site.

A renewed effort is being made with me revisiting  - PARACHUTE use in World War One -
to begin with I'm concentrating on the Balloon Observers - Aerostatiers - so expect to see a slowly growing list of British, French and Americans who used parachutes to save their lives. I'll also include, where known, those who did not make it to give the fuller picture. Proving more difficult to find is information on the parachute descents by the other nations who used Observation Balloons. If you can help with WW1  parachute descents please contact me at the usual mbenshar@aol.com .

Best regards

Mike

 

THE UKRAINE


Details of the unfolding situation in the Ukraine are now consolidated on a separate page. This means that unless ejections or bail-outs are involved they will not appear on the 2014 page. Please visit Ukraine Conflict
