Auster Aircraft Ltd. was a British aircraft manufacturer from 1938 to 1961. In total, 1,604 high-wing Taylorcraft Auster mono-planes were built during World War II for the armed forces of the UK and Canada. All designs of the Auster were evolved from the early Taylorcraft with a sprung skid or tailwheel beneath the fin. Post-war, the Auster was used for a variety of activities. For example, VIP transport, private owner flights, mail delivery and joy rides.
Avro Shackleton MR3
The Avro Shackleton was a British long-range maritime patrol aircraft used by the Royal Air Force (RAF) and the South African Air Force (SAAF). It was developed from the Avro Lincoln bomber, itself being a development of the famous wartime Avro Lancaster bomber. It was replaced by Nimrod maritime patrol aircraft in the 1970s. Also, the aircraft was adapted for airborne early warning (AEW) roles within the RAF, replaced by the Boeing E-3 Sentry in 1990. The type is named after the polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton.
The Avro Vulcan is a jet-powered tailless delta wing high-altitude strategic bomber. It was operated by the RAF from 1956 until 1984. Of the three V bombers produced, the Vulcan was considered the most technically advanced. Hence, it was the riskiest option. Several scale aircraft were produced to test and refine the wing design principles.
The Aztec is a four-to-six-seat twin-engined light aircraft aimed at the general aviation market. It saw service with the United States Navy and other countries’ military forces in small numbers. The aircraft was manufactured from the 1950s to the 1980s by Piper Aircraft in the United States. With its 186 kW Lycoming O-540 engines and a swept vertical tail, the Aztec was popular for its spacious interior and ability to haul large loads.
The B-24 Liberator is an American heavy bomber. At its inception, the B-24 was a modern design featuring a highly efficient shoulder-mounted, high aspect ratio Davis wing. Its wing gave the Liberator a high cruise speed, long range and the ability to carry a heavy bomb load. Early RAF Liberators were the first aircraft to cross the Atlantic Ocean as a matter of routine. The B-24 was used extensively in World War II. It served in every branch of the American armed forces, as well as several Allied air forces and navies, and saw use in every theater of operations.
The British Aerospace 146 (or BAe 146) is a short-haul airliner and a regional air-liner. It was manufactured in the United Kingdom by British Aerospace. It is a high-wing cantilever monoplane with a T-tail. Four turbofan engines are mounted on pylons underneath the wings, and it has retractable tricycle landing gear. The aircraft has very quiet operation, and has been marketed under the name Whisper-jet. It sees wide usage at small city-based airports such as London City Airport. In its primary role it serves as a regional jet, short-haul airliner or regional airliner.
The Bristol Beaufighter is a multi-role aircraft developed during World War II by the Bristol Aeroplane Company in the UK. Upon its entry to service, the Beaufighter proved to be well suited to the night fighter role. This was due to its large size, allowing it to accommodate both heavy armaments and early airborne interception radar.
The Beechcraft Baron is a light, twin-engined piston aircraft developed by Beechcraft. The Baron is a variant of the Travel Air, and was introduced in 1961.
Beech King Air 350
The Beech King Air family is part of a line of utility aircraft produced by Beechcraft. Comprising of a number of twin-turboprop models, it has been divided into two families. First, the Model 90 and 100 series, developed in the 1960s are known as King Airs. The second, the T-tail Model 200 and 300 series were originally marketed as Super King Airs. The King Air was the first aircraft in its class and has been in continuous production since 1964. It has outsold all of its turboprop competitors combined.
Blue Angel F18
The Blue Angels are the United States Navy’s flight demonstration squadron, with aviators from the Navy and Marines. Its team was formed in 1946, making it the second oldest formal flying aerobatic team in the world. The Blue Angels’ six demonstration pilots currently fly the McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet, typically in more than 70 shows at 34 locations throughout the United States each year. They still employ many of the same practices and techniques used in their aerial displays in their inaugural 1946 season. Since 1946, the Blue Angels have flown for more than 260 million spectators!
Boeing Flying Fortress
The Boeing Flying Fortress is a four-engine heavy bomber developed in the 1930s for the United States Army Air Corps (USAAC). Competing for a contract to build 200 bombers, the Boeing entry outperformed ite competitors, exceeding the air corps’ performance specifications. From its introduction in 1938, the Boeing evolved through numerous designs. The Flying Fortress was primarily employed by the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) in the daylight strategic bombing campaign of World War II against German industrial and military targets. Also, the Flying Fortress participated to a lesser extent in the War in the Pacific, early in World War II. There, it conducted raids against Japanese shipping and airfields.
The Boeing Stearman is a biplane used as a military trainer aircraft. Widely known as the Stearman, Boeing Stearman or Kaydet, it served as a primary trainer for the United States Army Air Forces, the United States Navy, and with the Royal Canadian Air Force throughout World War II. After the conflict was over, thousands of surplus aircraft were sold on the civilian market. In the immediate postwar years they became popular as crop dusters, sports planes, and for aerobatic and wing walking use in air shows.
The English Electric Canberra is a British first-generation jet-powered medium bomber that was manufactured during the 1950s. It was developed by English Electric during the mid-to-late 1940s. It was required to have an outstanding high altitude bombing capability in addition to flying at high speeds. When the Canberra was introduced to service with the RAF in 1951, it became the service’s first jet-powered bomber aircraft.
The Cessna 152 is an American two-seat, fixed tricycle gear, general aviation airplane, used primarily for flight training and personal use. It was based on the earlier Cessna 150, including a number of minor design changes and a slightly more powerful engine running on 100LL aviation gasoline.
The Cessna Caravan is an American single-engined turboprop, fixed-tricycle landing gear, short-haul regional airliner and utility aircraft that is built in the United States by Cessna. Typically, the aircraft can seat nine passengers with a single pilot. However, a FAR Part 23 waiver can seat up to fourteen passengers. It is also used for cargo feederliner operations.
Cessna Skyhawk 172
The Cessna 172 Skyhawk is a four-seat, single-engine, high wing, fixed-wing aircraft. It wass made by the Cessna Aircraft Company. Measured by its longevity and popularity, the Cessna 172 is the most successful aircraft in history. The basic 172 appeared in November 1955 as the 1956 model and remained in production until replaced by the 172A in early 1960. It was equipped with a Continental O-300 145 hp (108 kW) six-cylinder, air-cooled engine and had a maximum gross weight of 2,200 lb (998 kg). A total of 4,195 were constructed over the five years.
