Introduction

Welcome to Forgotten Jets, my massively time-consuming obession with old military jets from the 1940s to 70s. What I'm attempting to do here is match up operational histories and photos with individual serial/bureau numbers, which is just as difficult as you might imagine (if not a million times more so).

As of this minute I am trying (and failing miserably) to keep track of 288 different subtypes of 59 types, for a grand total of about 134,700 individual airplanes. I am clearly insane...

What's new here...


January 11, 2016: Hi there. Cleaning out some folders again, this time for the hard-to-find T2V/T-1 Seastar, just a starter template for now, hopefully more info will be found. Note that I've added a new “US Navy Trainer” subsection to the right menu.

December 24, 2015: So, as 2015 winds down, what would people (you) like to see in 2016? Drop me an email, I'm open to suggestions!

November 19, 2015: Cleaning out the dusty corners of the desktop again, I should just go ahead and post this page for the Rooskie MiG-23/27 Flogger now before my job picks up for the season. Terribly incomplete but a nice foundation to build on for future updates.
