You will mostly find photos of whole aircraft on my blog, but there are more creative ways they can be photographed. Here’s my try at it. Photos were made in the last few years in different locations around the world. Oh and if you correctly identify all the aircraft from the photos you will receive a small prize.

There’s a number of true aviation relics on the grounds of IMW Duxford but I find this one as most remarkable – a piece of canvas from the wing of Wright Brothers Flyer aircraft – which made the first powered flight in history.
Bristol Blenheim in the works.
Each year Slovenian Army celebrates its day (15th May) by opening doors of its barracks and bases. Military part of the Cerklje airfield is no exception. Based in SouthEastern part of Slovenia, this used to be Yugoslav AF base equipped with J-21 Jastreb and J-22 Orao jet attack planes in 1991. After the war, airfield was taken over by Slovenian Army and it became its main aviation base with just a small detachement based at Ljubljana International aerodrome. Today it is home to Aviation School equipped with Zlin 242L and 143 light aircraft and Bell 206 JetRanger helicopters. Advanced turboprop trainers/light attack aircraft Pilatus PC-9M “Swifts” are also based there. Other assests like Cougars, Porters, B412s and Turbolet also visit the base frequently.
As I was working that day, I only managed to take some of the aircraft pictures.

The Pilatus PC-6 Porter is a single-engined Short Take-Off and Landing (STOL) utility aircraft designed by Pilatus Aircraft of Switzerland. First flown in 1959, the PC-6 has been built in both piston engine and turboprop powered versions, and has been built both by Pilatus and by Fairchild Hiller in the United States. It remains in production as of August 2011.
