Aero Research is back with their first installment in theUS Army Collection. This new photo CD features a random sampling of US Army aircraft photos that were taken anywhere between the 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 first installment in the series US Army Collection provides you with an interesting variety of fixed and rotary winged operational aircraft which include:

  • AH-1 Cobra
  • AH-64 Apache
  • C-7 Caribou
  • C-12 Huron
  • C-31 Troopship
  • C-47 Skytrain
  • C-54 Skymaster
  • F-10 Skyknight
  • F-51 Mustang
  • F-86 Sabre
  • H-1 Iroquois
  • H-19 Chickasaw
  • H-34 Choctaw
  • H-37 Mojave
  • H-47 Chinook
  • H-54 Skycrane
  • H-58 Kiowa
  • H-60 Blackhawk
  • OV-1 Mohawk
  • PC-9
  • T-28 Trojan
  • T-41 Mescalero
  • U-1 Otter
  • U-3 Blue Canoe
  • U-4 Aero Commander
  • U-6 Beaver
  • U-8 Seminole
  • U-21 Ute
  • UV-20 Chiricahua
  • YAH-63
  • YO-3A
  • YUH-61

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 another 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 or via email

My sincere thanks to Aero Research for this review sample!
