Antique airplanes, vintage airplanes, old airplanes... call them what you will. We love them all.... antique, old and not so old.
We love and read all those glossy aviation magazines too, but we wanted to share what WE'VE found, and what YOU could find.
With aircraft it's not quite the same as with furniture is it!?
The oldest of the old aeroplanes are barely antiques by those standards...
And today even many jets are vintage aircraft....
...including the oh-so-sleek SR-71! Click on images for gallery slide show.
OK... so we have a broad definition of "antique" when it comes to aeroplanes!
Now, speaking of oh-so-sleek... this is not a sleek commercial website. This is our home grown website... done with a great love of aviation and a wish to share. We hope you look around and enjoy it.
So what are we trying to give you here? A site you can come to for information about where to find antique airplanes... in small hangars, in museums or at air shows around the world....
Because Mark worked for an airline, we've traveled the world for over 40 years. We look for vintage airplanes.... any airplanes where ever we travel.
We've written about our travels at MouseTours Travels but we wanted a place to highlight vintage aircraft... so here we are sharing our adventures and discoveries with you.
We visit museums, but we also look for airports where pilots with old planes congregate, and we love air shows that feature classic aircraft.
That's right... We'll need your help; we can't find them all, so we want your tips... suggestions... stories... and your favorites. Even your questions.
What we write about depends on where we travel... and when we find time to write about all the fun.
Most aviation museums and air shows we write
about will be in the U.S. since that is our home base, but we're trying
to include great international places to see antique airplanes...
vintage aircraft that you just won't see in the U.S.
So fasten your seatbelt in preparation for take off.
Come along with us as we add pages to show you what we've found. Where to
Share stories and photos with us of great old airplanes that you've found.
