photographic-reconnaissance (Airrecce) has come a very long
way since its humble beginnings in the First World War. By the
end of World War Two, the Royal Air Force and its Allies, used
a wide range of aircraft and systems to photograph it's
enemies at will, by day and night.
Now in these modern times the Royal Air Force and other Nations are stepping away from the "wet film" systems and are working towards digital, using video tape and other high tech systems that relay imagery directly to the Photographic Interpreters sitting away from the battlefront.
The main aim of this site is to inform you of the Units that undertook the role of Airrecce, also the equipment they used, and some examples of the imagery taken.
