Do you want to know the story behind the photos and the man behind the camera?  Follow the link below to read an in depth interview and sample a selection of Scott's powerful photography.

The Vintage Aviator - The Aircraft Collection

While looking over a few posts of one of my favorite internet forums I spotted a post by Dave Homewood featuring pictures from his visit to The Vintage Aviator.  The Vintage Aviator is a company in New Zealand that specializes in World War One aircraft.  Take a few minutes to look through this collection of pictures!

After looking through the photo tour of the collection be sure to follow the link below to The Vintage Aviator web site.  This is one VERY nice web site.  Still can't get enough picture of World War One aircraft?  I highly recommend the book Ghosts - The Great War by Philip Makanna.

Spartan Executive Restoration - NC4444

Being that I am addicted to vintage airplane pictures my buddy Keith helped feed my addiction by sending me pictures this weekend from the heavily vintage airplane populated airport in Creve Coeur Airport near St. Louis.  As soon as he sent the first picture my mind turned toward the Spartan that is under restoration on the field.  Keith did not disappoint!  A few minutes later my iPhone had multiple Spartan pictures to scroll through.  Serial number 18, Spartan 7W, NC4444 is being restored by John Cournoyer.  It has been on a slow but steady pace the last few years and it looking very nice!  As I say quite often in this blog... I can't wait to see this one in the air!  Thanks to Keith Moody for the pictures and thank you John Cournoyer for saving and restoring this rare Spartan Executive.
