Its worse...

Just think that this material is rotting away, beyond the state of being useful.

It gets even worse then that.

I spoke to a guy who runs the archive of the Dutch AF, and he said that a lot of material is even thrown away for lack of time/space etc. Of course who decides what's interesing enough to safe and what's not?

Just thought I'd mention that if I'd EVER get to the point of being independant in terms of income, I'd try and make it a purpose of a life time to hunt for said material, to create a dedicated central archive and as far as possible scan the material.

Luckily I am not alone when it comes to this subject and many hands make for fast work - in this context its even essential.
