Aero Research is back with a new title in their ever-growing line-up of photo-reference CD-ROMs. In this installment, we have USAF Collection No.8 which follows No.7 released over a year ago. Once again, I used my image browser to scan through some of the aircraft on the disc and I was quite impressed with the selection of aircraft. Many of these photos were taken of these aircraft on the flightline, in flight, or at the occasional static display. Taking a closer look at the data in the directory, these images are provided at 4000 pixels wide.

Among the aircraft represented here:

  • AC-130 Spectre
  • B-26 Invader
  • C-20 Gulfstream
  • C-130 Hercules
  • C-131 Samaritan
  • C-135 Stratolifter
  • EF-111 Raven
  • F-4 Phantom II
  • F-5 Freedom Fighter
  • F-16 Fighting Falcon
  • F-100 Super Sabre
  • F-104 Starfighter
  • F-111/FB-111 Aardvark
  • F-117 Nighthawk
  • H-3 Jolly Green Giant
  • H-34 Huskie
  • HU-16 Albatross
  • SR-71 Blackbird
  • T-33 Shooting Star
  • T-38 Talon
  • U-2 Dragon Lady
  • YF-12A

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!
