Notes: PdF, Catalogue # 1081

Aero Research moves along with its third offering of Navy Corsair IIs. The type served from the late 1960s until the early 1990s without any major airframe issues, unlike many newer types. It was so successful that it was not only widely used by the USAF, but also by several foreign air forces, many of which received ex-USN airframes.

The 150 or so images cover a wide swath of camouflage schemes that were carried by the aircraft, though the majority of the images are of the colorful light gull grey over white. Pretty much every USN unit is also covered.   Each of the 7.20 x 4.70 inch images on the Pdf is listed with the unit, serial number and location of the photo if that information is available. You will find that these images are smaller than on the CD, and that is because you simply cannot send 190MB or so of images via e-mail where 20MB is generally the max. These Pdf files are provided in two separate e-mails and are plenty large enough to make out salient details.

If you want this on CD it will be $12.95 plus $4.45 US shipping so visit their web site for more information. There is a real benefit from PdF files for overseas buyers as one does not pay what is really an onerous shipping.

 You can get more information by visiting As a note, more and more of the older issues are being provided as Pdf files so check to see what has been done.

Thanks to Aero Research for the review CD.
