are in monochrome. Very few are in colour.
Some of the images listed as being in the archive are
NOT available for distribution due to copyright restrictions.

HOW TO OBTAIN IMAGES FROM THE COLLECTION
(IMAGING OPTIONS, CHARGES and PAYMENT INFORMATION)

with David Jackson in front of part of the Collection at Brooklands
The Jackson Family is very pleased to advise that, following the hiatus caused
by the unexpected death of the Curator, Roger Jackson, the A J Jackson
Collection has now been moved to a permanent home at the Brooklands Museum.
The Museum has agreed to the continuing supply of Collection images
through the A J Jackson web site, with AJJ's other son David acting as Curator on behalf of the Museum.
The Collection is therefore once again able to accept small orders by email for
images and information from the AJJ archive. Please see HERE for details of costs etc.

The A J Jackson Collection consists of a library, document collection
and photographic archive, containing over 30,000 negatives and
prints. The Collection was built up over 55 years by the late Aviation
historian and author A J Jackson and was made more comprehensive during the 1960s and 1970s by the inclusion of
material donated by several of his friends, most notably those of C.H. Barnes
(a Putnam author and former technical librarian with the Bristol Aeroplane
Company), C.A. Nepean Bishop (a pre-war sporting pilot and wartime flying
instructor who was later well known as the CFI of the Tiger Club), W.K. Kilsby
(a Bristol based professional photographer and enthusiast who started
photographing aircraft as a hobby around the end of the first world war) and
L.T. Mason (late of the Air Registration Board).
This web site was developed by AJJ's younger son, Roger, up to his untimely death
in late 2004, after which management of the Collection reverted to AJJ's elder
son, David, to whom AJJ had left the Collection in 1982. David donated the
Collection to Brooklands in early 2005 in order to safeguard its long term
integrity and he continues to manage the supply of images and the web site on
behalf of the Museum.
The focus is on British civil aviation during the years 1919 to
1960 but there are also details and photographs of many foreign,
Commonwealth and military aircraft. Amongst the many varied items within the
archive are past civil aircraft registers, including some from abroad, a
database of pre-WW2 owners of British civil aircraft, and information on
British civil aircraft crashes and accidents from 1919 to the 1970s.
