Aero Research is back with the first full-coverage of the Grumman E-2 Hawkeye and its cousin, the C-2 Greyhound. As with other titles from Aero Research, this release has a terrific selection of photos spanning from 1960s through 2009. You'll find numerous examples of the E-2A, E-2B, E-2C, and even Hawkeye 2000. Also provided are 16 photos of the Greyhound spanning the same timeframe.

In addition to the variety of Hawkeye variants, this photo CD also has a great cross-section of squadron colors on these aircraft including VAW-78, VAW-83, VAW-88, VAW-110, VAW-111, VAW-112, VAW-113, VAW-114, VAW-115, VAW-116, VAW-117, VAW-120, VAW-121, VAW-122, VAW-123, VAW-124, VAW-125, VAW-126, VAW-127, VRC-30, VRC-40, and VRC-50.

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!

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!
