Aero Research is back with the third installment in their Worldwide Military series. This new photo CD features a nice selection of S-3 Viking variants from early service through the types retirement. 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 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. These include:

  • ES-3A - VQ-5
  • ES-3A - VQ-6
  • S-3A - NATC
  • S-3A - VS-21
  • S-3A - VS-22
  • S-3A - VS-24
  • S-3A - VS-27
  • S-3A - VS-28
  • S-3A - VS-29
  • S-3A - VS-30
  • S-3A - VS-31
  • S-3A - VS-32
  • S-3A - VS-33
  • S-3A - VS-35
  • S-3A - VS-37
  • S-3A - VS-38
  • S-3A - VS-41
  • S-3A - VSSU
  • S-3A - VX-1
  • S-3B - VS-31
  • S-3B - VS-32
  • S-3B - VS-33
  • S-3B - VS-37
  • S-3B - VS-38

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 or via email

My sincere thanks to Aero Research for this review sample!
