Here's an instant hit with my reference library - A-7 Corsair II Part 1 from Aero Research. This CD is loaded with nothing but SLUFs (Short Little Ugly 'Fellas') in US Navy service. This disc contains 167 high resolution images covering the A--7A, A-7B, A-7E, TA-7C, and EA-7L Corsair II across a wide range of squadrons. The majority of these photos showcase the SLUF in its high visibility colors and markings though there are examples of low-visibility SLUFs in this set as well.

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.

This latest installment includes images of:

  • VA-12 (2 aircraft)
  • VA-15 (4 aircraft)
  • VA-22 (7 aircraft)
  • VF-25 (8 aircraft)
  • VA-27 (7 aircraft)
  • VA-37 (7 aircraft)
  • VA-46 (6 aircraft)
  • VA-56 (5 aircraft)
  • VA-66 (4 aircraft)
  • VA-72 (5 aircraft)
  • VA-81 (5 aircraft)
  • VA-82 (2 aircraft)
  • VA-83 (4 aircraft)
  • VA-86 (8 aircraft)
  • VA-93 (4 aircraft)
  • VA-94 (5 aircraft)
  • VA-97 (6 aircraft)
  • VA-105 (1 aircraft)
  • VA-113 (8 aircraft)
  • VA-122 (2 aircraft)
  • VA-125 (2 aircraft)
  • VA-146 (10 aircraft)
  • VA-147 (6 aircraft)
  • VA-153 (3 aircraft)
  • VA-155 (1 aircraft)
  • VA-174 (3 aircraft)
  • VA-192 (4 aircraft)
  • VA-195 (6 aircraft)
  • VA-203 (2 aircraft)
  • VA-204 (2 aircraft)
  • VA-205 (2 aircraft)
  • VA-215 (2 aircraft)
  • VA-303 (3 aircraft)
  • VA-304 (6 aircraft)
  • VA-305 (2 aircraft)
  • VAQ-34 (2 aircraft)
  • VX-5 (1 aircraft)
  • NAEC (1 aircraft)
  • NATC (1 aircraft)
  • NMC (1 aircraft)
  • NWC (1 aircraft)
  • NWEF (1 aircraft)
  • TPS (1 aircraft)

This selection of images provide lots of high-visibility color schemes, as well as later service low-visibility schemes.

This is a nice selection of imagery that you won't find available in such clarity and size. This title is recommended!

You can purchase this reference or any of their other photo CDs directly from their website www.aeroresearchcds.com or via email (AeroResearch@Charter.net).

My sincere thanks to Aero Research for this review sample!
