In May 2004 we purchased a large collection of 10,000 plus all different photos of aircraft printed on postcards. All unless specified are black and white on top quality photographic postcard card including some commercially produced postcards. They are in original condition. The photos have come from a variety of sources including some by professional photographers (some with copyright details on the reverse) but others by unknown photographers as well as the collector himself who was a experienced aviation photographer. Most of the New Zealand views in particular were taken by the collector himself and will be unique. We have only single copies of each and every card so prompt ordering is suggested.

All the photos have useful accurate pencil notations on the reverse giving aircraft model number, aircraft actual number, date and place of photo and other interesting details etc. All are standard traditional postcard size of 5 inches x 3 inches  (14cm x 8.5cm).

We are offering them in groups of each aircraft type arranged in Aircraft manufacturer order. If requested we will provide scans or fuller details of any of the listed items. We hope to add to the available lists as and when time allows. We have provided scans of some of the items but can scan any others on request. If requesting a scan email us at steve@philatelic.org.nz
