Updated: 28-Dec-2016 @ 0930

🔵 = Transoceanic flight, now added to identify aircraft on an ocean crossing

- Correction to Sierra Nevada Do328 identity, and history. This version makes much more sense now.

The photos appearing in this section are linked directly back to the original photograph elsewhere. If you click for the larger version it will open in a new window. More often than not, the location of the photo will be at Flickr™.  While you are there, please take the opportunity to check out some more of the photographers work, there are generally hundreds, if not thousands of great aviation photographs to be seen.

The original photographers have permitted the use of the images here. They cannot be re-posted, or re-used elsewhere without obtaining permission from the photographer directly.


If you have good quality photographs uploaded at any other location (Flickr, Smugmug, A-Net, JP etc.) and want to have them featured in this section, just use the contact form. I will do the rest, no work necessary on your part!
