USAF 'Boss Birds' No.1 Photo CD Review
|Date of Review||November 2010||Title||USAF 'Boss Birds' No.1|
|ISBN||None||Format||154 very high resolution JPEGs|
Aero Research has added a new series in their photo libary series - USAF Boss Birds. Here are the commanders' mounts from a nice cross-section of units, time periods, and aircraft types.
This new photo CD features a random sampling of USAF aircraft photos that were taken anywhere between the mid 1960s to present. None of these photos are from the government photo archives, these are all compiled from the same excellent range of professional (or very skilled) aviation photographers.
Most importantly, all of these photos are of aircraft still in service, no derelicts, boneyard storage, or museum pieces. Many of them were photographed in various theaters around the world.
This latest installment includes images of:
- A-37B Dragonfly
- EF-111A Raven
- F-4D Phantom II
- F-4E Phantom II
- F-4F Phantom II
- F-4G Phantom II
- F-16A Fighting Falcon
- F-16C Fighting Falcon
- F-105D T-Stick-II Thunderchief
- F-106A Delta Dart
- KC-135R Stratotanker
- RF-4C Phantom II
For the tail spotter, you'll see these aircraft from a variety of time periods to that you'll get representative configurations of the airframe during different phases of its operational life. You'll also be able to see the aircraft in a variety of color schemes. For the modeler, you'll see lots of good details and color information for tackling that next project.
This is a nice selection of imagery that you won't find available in such clarity and size. This title is recommended!
My sincere thanks to Aero Research for this review sample!
