idea of looking back at particular places through the 'Then &
Now' photographic method, where one can get an idea of what these
places looked like during their active service, is a genre that
appeared in the mid-eighties and has become a very popular format
for enthusiasts, visitors and history buffs to show them details
that they would never otherwise have known about; especially
valuable if one intends to visit the site. Here we present our
version of the same thing - Bases and Places that are directly
relevant to Flying Boats.
Of course, it is
impossible for SEAWINGS to visit every one of them - they
are after all, spread all over the World, so we are extremely
grateful to our correspondents that have visited them for us and given
of their time to take these images.
