Notes: PdF, Catalogue # 1106. CD available

Aero Research has provided us another fine set of photos, this time it is a compilation of images from the boneyard at Davis-Mothnan AFB. This offering contains aircraft in various states of preservation from freshly arrived on the ramp, to fully spray latted and in some cases fairly well cannibalized. These are aircraft that were in service during the 1950s to the early 1970s. It includes both Navy and Air Force aircraft such as the C-54, C-124, B-66, C-121 and many more. Included in this set are a fair number of black and white in addition to the usual color images.

This offering provides well over the usual 150 images with as much information as is known provided with the image. I review the PdF version as it saves on shipping costs and I can easily save the images to my computer. The PdF is emailed in two e-mails so there is not the huge expense of shipping if you live outside the US. The CD is also available if you wish it.  This is a great offering if you like the aircraft and is well worth getting.

Aero Research is converting its previous editions to PdF format, but that will not happen overnight. There is a real benefit from PdF files for overseas buyers as one does not pay shipping. Check their website for the latest conversions.
