I am trying to assemble a database of the photographs I have on-line. Right now,
I'm working on a static list of photographs. Later,
I hope to create a searchable database.
If I had to list one thing that I'm actively trying to put on my
home-page, it would have to be aircraft pictures. Currently, I
try and take my camera with me whenever I travel so that I can
accumulate a collection of airplane photos.
I'm also working on a list of other aviation
sites that I have found interesting or useful (ex. aircraft registration databases).
I am always looking for more information about the aircraft I've photographed.
If you see an error, or have some additional information about the history or
background of anything here, please drop me
So far, this is what's made it onto the web:
Photos from the EAA's 1997 Oshkosh Fly-In.
I'm currently working on putting as many of the ca. 200 pictures I took
at Oskhosh '97 online. Currently, I have DC-3's and the Shackleton
bomber/AEW pages up, and I have photos of the Farie Gannet and Grumman
Albatroses scanned and almost in place.
- Photos of some of the collection at the Florence Air & Missle Museum
in Florence, SC taken on two trips to Florence in
May, 1997 and
I unexpectedly encountered this museum on my first trip to
Florence in May of 1997. It's a wonderful collection of
retired military aircraft.
It's one of those small museums where you can walk around and underneath
Recently, I read
that the museum was closing to allow expansion of the Florence airport parking
lot. If true, this is a terrible loss for the aircraft afficiando.
Photos from the Seattle Museum of Flight
I had a chance to visit Seattle and Everett, WA in April, 1997.
I visited the Museum of Flight at Boeing Field in Seattle, and
the Museum's Restoration Facility at Paine Field in Everett.
Photos of airplane wings.
I often sit in the exit row seat, and the most prominent feature I see
is the wing...
Photos that just don't fit anywhere.
Often I'll just take a single photo that isn't part of a larger grouping.
They end up here.
Photos from Raligh/Durham International Airport
These photos were taken March 11, 1997. There is a misc. mix
of planes that were passing by.
Photos from Newark International Airport
These photos were taken in
January, 1997. Currently the page includes a
United 777, and
a really nice DC-8.
Photos from Floyd Bennett Field
(now part of the National Park Service's "Gateway Recreation Area").
These aren't strictly airplane photos, but...
Photos from the EAA's 1996 Oshkosh Fly-In.
This is a somewhat random mix of pictures. There are
a bunch of a beautiful Connie, some transport planes,
a couple of close-ups of a Turbo-Rotax engine, and the
unavoidable "warbirds" pictures.
I have many more photos waiting to be scanned,
so this page should increase quite a bit in the next
months (well, since it's now after the 1997 Fly-In, I
guess I should face facts and admit that I may not get
any more of the '96 photos scanned...).
Photos from a trip to Monterey, CA in March, 1996.
This includes a variety of pictures from Madison, WI;
O'Hare, San Francisco, and Monterey. There are some
interesting shots of an old United 747, as well as
the "JET" Service Time Capsule near gate 81 in SFO.
I still have a number of photos from this trip. With any luck,
I'll be able to get them scanned and added in the future.
I'm hoping to be out traveling a bit in the next few months, so hopefully
I'll see some new and interesting craft.
I really missed an oportunity a month or so ago when I dropped a friend
off at the Milwaukee airport. For some reason I didn't bring my camera,
so I couldn't snap a picture of the Vastran modified (winglets)
private 727 that
landed and took off while we were waiting!
(For an even larger list of ways I waste my time,
