Half a Century Old… Pre-1950 Aircraft Design Scrapbook


All of these photos contain aircraft which were designed and first flown before 1950. That makes all of these variants more than 70 years old! Sure, some of these are rarities, but other designs are still in the forefront of General Aviation and Commercial flying today. This is the first of a two volume Scrapbook.


You can hover over the thumbnail for the year of first flight and type, click for a larger photo.

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 32 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.
