Aero Research has released their latest photo reference CD, this covering the fifth installment of their Warbird Collection. Here is another nice batch of high-resolution photos of a nice variety of warbirds from around the US taken sometime between the mid-1960s to 2010.

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 an impressive number of aircraft, many of which no longer exist due to accidents or simply wear and tear.

Among the aircraft types covered here:

  • A6M Zero
  • A-26 Intruder
