This 1966 An-12B flew with many different companies, but it started its career with the Soviet Air Force. It was commercially sold to AFL/Privolzhsk in the late 1990s, and then companies as Aeroflot, Avial, Southern AirGroupe, Eurasia Airlines, Pochta Rossii and Aeriantur-M (as shown on this picture) followed. In October 2007, the An-12 suffered a ground incident at Kisangani (DRC) damaging an engine and the starboard main undercarriage. The owners rebuilt the aircraft but it unfortunately crashed with Aerolift as S9-SVN at Luxer (Egypt) on 20 February 2009. Thanks Soviet Transports database!

There are Tomcats and there are beautiful Tomcats. A classic picture of a towed Tomcat over the deck of the USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71). The aircraft was on its way to the the rear of the flight deck where it was positioned for an upcoming morning launch. Many Tomcats were scrapped at AMARG to prevent spare parts feeding to Iran. Luckily, this beauty was relieved from that fate. Since September 2006, 164342 is preserved at the Wings over Miami Museum at Kendall (FL).

C-2A about to touch down at the USS Theordore Roosevelt (CVN-71), closely observed by three F-14Ds. The Carrier On-board Delivery aircraft is a true work horse and flies all day long between the carrier and shore bases to supply the floating city rotating personnel, food, spare parts, post, journalists (like me), general cargo, and so on. Unfortunately, in due time, these beautiful prop planes will be replaced by CMV-22B Osprey tiltrotors.

A 5th generation prototype... This F-22A model 1, rolled out at Dobbins on 10 February 1998 and made its first flight at 29 June 1998. The Raptor, serial 91-4002, was ferried to Edwards AFB for the flight test programme with the 411th Flight Test Squadron on 26 August 1998. The picture was made at Edwards air show in October 1999. The Raptor - only a couple of months old and in full swing in its test environment - was at that moment parked next to that other magic plane.
