1. Why does Internet Explorer 7 or 8 not display the top part of the web page properly...?

IE7/8 is blocking the ActiveX controls on this part of the page. Adjust your security settings in IE to allow ActiveX (yellow security bar above page). This issue doe not occur with Firefox. However, if you are using separate script blocking software, you may not be able to view parts of the new website unless you adjust your security settings to allow this website.

2. Why can't the photos be kept together on their respective aircraft pages... ?

Where a large number of photos exist for the same aircraft, some of these have been placed in the Photo Gallery and some have been retained on the main page or subsequent pages. The Photo Gallery, and pages subsequent to the aircraft's main page (p.1-B, p.1-C, etc.), display images in larger sizes than is possible on the main pages.

4. Can you use photos of memorials, etc. relating to aircraft crashes, even if there is no wreckage left at the site ... ?

Certainly. People who have lost friends or loved ones usually appreciate seeing a memorial - especially, if they are unable to visit the crash sites themselves.

Except for headings, brown or maroon is the normal text colour. Usually, black text indicates a hyperlinked word or phrase. Click on the black text to open the link.

6. Why is there a delay in Firefox of about 15 seconds before pages begin to scroll smoothly ... ?

This is caused by a browser Add-On called 'Ghostery'. If you are  using Ghostery or similar cookie monitor add-ons or plug-ins, it may be necessary to disable these in Firefox while browsing this website. Also, and unlike Internet Explorer or Safari, Firefox tends not to scroll smoothly on pages with Java or ActiveX scripts, such as those used by GoogleAds.

7. Why does Internet Explorer keep asking me to install Adobe Flash, even although I have it installed already...?

Sometimes, Internet Explorer fails repeatedly to detect a current version of Adobe Flash. If you already have the player installed, allow IE to install (re-install) it anyway. However, when asked by Adobe to install the latest Flash player, click Quit (not Agree / Install). The page will now load normally. However, if you do not have the Adobe Flash player installed already you won't be able to view some of the pages properly.

8. In 'Nearest large town', what do the letters in parenthesis mean after the name of the town(s) ?...

These are compass points taken in relation to the crash site. E.g., on the Douglas B-26 Invader page, the nearest large town is shown as Newmilns (NW), meaning Newmilns lies to the north-west of the crash site. (Kilmarnock  in parenthesis signifies a nearby major town).
