Aviation Photo Galleries:

The Aviation Photo Galleries are arranged as listed below. By selecting the Era and clicking on the Service of your choice, you will be linked to the appropriate page with the aircraft, fact files, and available photo sets for the aircraft.

In placing aircraft in categories, the choice of U. S. or foreign will be based on the country of origin.  Any aircraft designed and built in the United States will be shown in the U. S. Aircraft category regardless of the national markings displayed on the subject.  For example, an F/A-18 Hornet in Swiss markings and an F6F Hellcat in British markings would both be in the U. S. Aircraft category.

Placing an aircraft in an era category will be based on when the aircraft saw most of its operational service.  For example, the prototype of the F8F Bearcat first flew during World War II, and a few actually entered squadron service before the end of the war.  However almost all of the Bearcat’s operational service occurred after World War II, so any photo sets for the F8F will be in the Post World War II category.  In rare cases, one aircraft will span two categories.  Earlier variants of the F4U Corsair will be found in the World War II category, while later ones would be in the Post World War II category.
