Nowadays the variety is somewhat limited, but in the past aircraft-spotters had the opportunity to see far more different (military) aircraft types flying by and in greater numbers. Especially lucky for us ,however, belonging to the older generation, many of these still can be seen namely in aircraft museums, as gate-guards at airbases, as eyecatchers, static displays, wrecks, etc. etc.
In this album we try to bring together images of the preserved past.
