    Am I the only person here who who has concerns regarding the actual ownership of the intellectual property rights of some or all of the photographs that Pampa14 posts here on a very regular basis, and the potential copyright infringement that goes with them?? I am aware of the "Fair use" laws in certain countries, but this does not apply to all.

    Let's be honest, how many members here take offence when their own original prints are re-published without prior permission by other parties, sometimes for monetary gain??

    Let's here it.

    The Air Transport Auxiliary employed 168 female pilots during the Second World War, Duties included ferrying planes from factories to military airfields and piloting air ambulances. Among the planes transported were Spitfire and Hurricane fighters and the huge Lancaster bomber. Although the majority of pilots were British, they also came from the US, Australia and Poland among others.
    Dubbed the 'Attagirls' by their male comrades, the 168-strong squadron was based at RAF Hamble in Hampshire and RAF Cosford in Shropshire, and were trained to fly 38 types of aircraft.
