CONVAIR B-36J PEACEMAKER – Here is the beauty of the Pima Air & Space Museum. When I photographed the B-36 at the Air Force Museum at Wright-Patterson AFB, planes were crammed in so closely that my photo included six other aircraft. Not here! Thank you, Pima Air & Space Museum!

BOEING B-52D STRATOFORTRESS

BOEING B-52G STRATOFORTRESS

MARTIN B-57E CANBERRA – The B-57 is one of only two major combat aircraft of foreign design adopted for use by the United States military since the end of World War II, the other being the Harrier.

CONVAIR B-58A HUSTLER – Here is a reminder of my first visit to Davis-Monthan AFB in the early 1970s. I still remember rwo rows of B-58s lined up in the storage area. How times have changed!

BOEING 737-3Q8 – I still fondly remember photographing Piedmont Airlines’ first 737-301 when it arrived in Greensboro on its delivery flight from Boeing Field. It’s hard to imagine that the “733” is now a museum piece.

BOEING 787-8 DREAMLINER – This is the second 787 prototype built and never entered service with ANA.

FOKKER C-31A TROOPSHIP – C-31A is the US military designation for the venerable F-27 Friendship. It is one of the last F-27s to be built with Rolls-Royce Dart engines.
