Online Resources About Airplanes Past and Present
Airplanes Online is a series of websites with resources about the great airplanes of the past, airplane boneyards around the world, airplane nose art, present-day jet airliner spotting and identification, and airplane museum reviews. Announcements about air shows and aviation-related news releases are also included.
The Airplanes of the Past website provides first-hand commentary, specifications, history and original photographs of great World War II planes such as the B-29 Superfortress and the B-17 Flying Fortress. Cold War and modern-era military aircraft such as the SR-71 Blackbird are also featured.
Military airplanes and commercial airliners have limited lifespans. Ultimately, the planes must be retired from service, stored in "airplane boneyards" or graveyards, and finally dismantled and scrapped. The Airplane Boneyards website covers the major boneyards in the deserts of the Western U.S. including the largest boneyard in the world, AMARG at Davis-Monthan AFB in Tucson, Arizona.
Today, our staff travels extensively, and has visited many renown airplane museums, Air Force bases, gatekeepers, static displays, air shows, and airparks. The Airplane Museums website provides reviews, maps, directions and photo galleries of these great aviation repositories.
The Airliner Spotter website features a series of visual airliner identification guides about Boeing, Airbus and other current airliners in use around the world.
