Antique/Classic/Contemporary Scrapbook #3


1941 Interstate S-1A-65F, one of Kent Pietsch’s air show aircraft.

Here’s the last of our three-volume collection of Antique and Classic aircraft. Some of these are former military aircraft, others were built for the civilian market in the first place. In any event, enjoy these various designs that were produced more than half a century ago (that’s right… 50 years!), but still look fresh.

Assignment and Content Editor, writer and photographer A New Englander all of my life, I've lived in New Hampshire since 1981. My passion for all things aviation began at a very early age, and I coupled this with my interest of photography during college in the late 1970s. I spent 35 years in the air traffic control industry, and concurrently, enjoyed my aviation photography and writing adventures, which continue today. I've been quite fortunate to have been mentored by some generous and gifted individuals. I enjoy contributing to this great site and working with some very knowledgeable and equally passionate aviation followers.
