New site spreading its wings is for everyone interested in aircraft, aviators and adventures up in the blue, from the dawn of time to right about now. Welcome aboard.

The largest part of the site is an exhibition of classical aircraft, famous as well as not so famous. In addition to their illustrated history you can also watch them fly and hear what they sounded like...

Here are memories and stories about the people who were there, reports on aviation historical activities and much more. Have a look around!
