Aero Research has released part eight of their civil aircraft photo reference CD. There are a wide variety of aircraft types ranging from business jets to warbirds on this disc.

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. 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 680
