Aero Research has released part three of their civil aircraft photo reference CD. There are a wide variety of aircraft types ranging from business jets to homebuilts, warbirds to rotary wing.

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, they have provided a nice shot of the sport model of the P-51 - the Piper Enforcer!

As with the previous releases, many of these images are provided at 4000 pixels wide. All of the photos are color and all are out of various collections. Most were taken while the aircraft were in service.

So what kind of aircraft will you find on the disc?

  • Aero Commander
  • Aero L-39
  • Aeronca Champ
  • Aerospatiale AS.350
  • Air Tractor AT-802

For the modeler, you'll see lots of good details and color information for tackling that civil aircraft 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!
