Aero Research has released part four 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 a Bacon Super T-6 converted with a nose wheel and tip tanks. I saw this aircraft or one like it wearing Soviet-era colors.

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?
