Notes: PdF, Catalogue # 1083

Aero Research presents their 12 offering on USN and USMC aircraft. As with others in this series, there is a wide variety of images included, many of which are of some fairly unusual types or variants. The disc contains155 images dating from the 1950s. This means that you'll find quite a few black and white images from those earlier days.

Each image has as much information as is known about the subject including serial, unit, date, and place. Every set seems to have subjects that have more photos than others and so it is with this one. I found that OV-10s, T-39s, helos of all types, and F9F Cougars were well represented.

The vast majority of the images are ones that have not been published before. 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. That is because you simply cannot send 190MB or so of images via e-mail where 20MB is generally the max. Each offering comes in two e-mails for those who get it via PdF.

If you want this on CD it will be $12.95 plus 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 shipping.
