Aero Research has released their next photo reference CD, this covering a variety of early commercial jetliners. This title wasn't originally on their release list, but they've clearly acquired quite an impressive collection to publish.

Once again I used my image browser to scan through the aircraft on the disc and I was quite impressed with the selection of aircraft. In this release, there are a nice variety of early turbine-powered airliners from Boeing, SUD, de Havilland, Convair, and Douglas. With six aircraft types covered in this title spread across 156 high resolution photos on this disc, you will have a wide variety of liveries from around the world to view as the three examples below illustrate. The photos range from the mid-1960s through the mid-1980s, all of examples that were in service in the photos.

The line-up of aircraft on this disk cover the following aircraft types:

  • Boeing 707
  • Boeing 720
  • Caravelle
  • Comet 4
  • Convair 880
  • Convair 990
  • DC-8

For the modeler, you'll see lots of good details and color information for a trip down memory lane or perhaps to tackle a scale airliner kit for a change of pace. For the enthusiast and modeler alike, you can browse through a nice variety of high-resolution images of some very nice aircraft!

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!
