About Aviation at War

I've always had an interest in aviation, history, and all things mechanical. My warbird obsession started with a fateful trip to the National Air Force Museum in Dayton, Ohio where I spent a weekend at a giant scale radio control fly-in and went through the museum. The warbird bug and radio control hobby soon took hold.

I found myself immersed in everything warbirds, the World War II era in particular. Radio control, books and magazines, flight simulators, warbird forums and websites, warbird related media, memorabilia collecting, and airshows were how I spent my free time. I also took up modeling again after a long hiatus and started building aircraft.

Eventually I made my way to collecting period photographs. There isn't anything like a particular aircraft or theater of war that interests me the most so my collection began to expand in many directions. My goal with Aviation at War is to help preserve the history of military aviation through myself and others sharing photos. On one hand you may think that you've spent your time and money to build your collection and ask yourself why share it with others, but I'm of the opinion that if I acquire a photo and put it in an album then what the photographer had captured at that moment dies with me. The purpose of this site is to keep that history alive and share it with the others that share the same goals and interests, aviation history. The men, women and machines in these photos deserve to be remembered. I hope that you all enjoy the site and will join me in my goal of preserving these images for future generations to see.

I strive to identify aircraft and crews as accurately as possible. Anyone with added information, comments or corrections on any photos or information is always encouranged to contact me.

This site is dedicated to all men and women who have served their country.
