I have a photo taken side-on of the plane which shows Captain Russel along with 2 other passengers (names unknown). I would be happy to duplicate or scan if anyone would like. Warwick

I believe that Richard Russell is my uncle. Do you have any photos of him as I guess if he was taking so many for a flight that day ,some one would have a photo with him. Thankyou regards joy Baird.
