aerial photograph of Soviet Submarine U-475 Black Widow moored in the River Medway near Rochester Kent UK. Refereed to by NATO as Foxtrot class the Soviets built 74 of the vessels from 1957 to 1983. The Black Widow was built in Leningrad in 1967 and served with the soviet fleet until 1994 when it was decommissioned and sold off. She is now in private hands and has been used as a Museum ship. The name U-475 Black Widow has been added in recent times and when she served with the Soviet Fleet she carried the number B-49.
The easiest way to navigate this gallery is using the geographic menu on the left. The aerial photographs are all organised in galleries according to their location so start with the county and then choose the town or village. Wales & Scotland are at the bottom under the English Counties. If your looking at a picture and are not sure where it is, click the arrow on the upper right and it will show you which album it is in. Click the album name to see nearby images. There is a search facility ( bottom left ) but this only works with words I have put into it. That's fine for searches of places or well known buildings but in most cases I have not entered road name or a post code. The gallery is only a small part of my collection of UK aerial photographs so please Email if you would like to buy an aerial view of something not in the gallery. There are over 25,000 photos in the gallery and I have an archive of around half a million pictures going back to 1999.
