Air,British,PW1970,Transport

In this section we bring you photos of transport and passenger carrying aircraft of the Royal Air Force. Covering the period from WW2 to the end of the 1970′s, we hope to add photos of aircraft mainly in the 1950′s, the height of the UK National Service era.

Our first aircraft are some marvellous Vickers Valetta’s which I think typify the design of 1950′s aircraft.

Here we have some nice photos showing mainly shot down or destroyed Russian WW2 aircraft probably taken early in the Eastern Front Campaign in 1941/42. A selection of Polikarpov I-15 biplanes, I-16 single-wing fighters and trainers and then the more modern looking Yak-1 and Yak-3 fighters.

This gallery contains original photos of Russian Air Force aircraft that come under the classification of light bombers. Our first photo is of a Petlyakov Pe-2 Light Bomber and our thanks go to Piotr Mikolajski, the editor of Plastikowe.pl a Polish website dedicated to some wonderful models of aircraft. We’d identified the photo as an Me-110 but Piotr emailed us to say it was actually a Pe-2.

Here we have some nice photos of the Junkers Ju 52 three-engined transports, the work-horse of the Luftwaffe. Famous for carrying German parachutists in 1941 in the invasion of Crete. If you’d like to see an original aircraft, the RAF Museum at Cosford in Shropshire, UK has a real beauty on display, even with the side door open so you can see inside.

This gallery contains original photos of German Luftwaffe aircraft that come under the classification of light bombers. We’ve included some Junkers Ju 87 Stuka dive bombers in this section along with some Me 110 that were used a light bombers on the Russian Front.
