Aero Research is back with a new series in their growing line-up of great offerings. This new photo CD features a random sampling of international military 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. According to the publisher, this is the first time that most of these images have ever been published.

This first installment in the series Worldwide Military No.1, which means that you'll get an interesting variety of operational aircraft from around the globe from 34 different countries. These include:

  • Andover
  • Alize
  • Atlantic
  • BAC 167
  • Bell 206
  • Bell 212
  • Bo 105
  • Boeing 707
  • Br 763
  • Br 941
  • Britannia
  • Brosboek
  • Bulldog
  • C-130 Hercules
  • CH-46
  • CH-47 Chinook

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!
