|ISBN||None||Format||162 very high resolution JPEGs|
Aero Research is back with the fourth installment from their CAG photo libraries. This new photo CD features a random sampling of USN and USMC CAG (air wing commander) aircraft photos that were taken anywhere between the mid 1960s to the early 2000s. 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 when photographed, no derelicts, boneyard storage, or museum pieces. Note that if you've been collecting many of their previous titles, quite a few images in this set have appeared in earlier releases.
This latest installment includes images of:
- RA-5 Vigilante
- A-7 Corsair II
- AV-8 Harrier
- E-2C Hawkeye
- F-4 Phantom II
- F-8 Crusader
- F-9F Cougar
- F-14 Tomcat
- F/A-18 Hornet
- H-1 Iroquois
- H-2 Seasrpite
- H-3 Iroquois
- H-34 Seabat
- H-53 Sea Stallion
- H-60 Seahawk
- S-3 Viking
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!
My sincere thanks to Aero Research for this review sample!
