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 256 different subtypes of 53 types of aircraft, for a grand total of about 116,015 individual airplanes. I am clearly insane...

What's new here...


January 28, 2015: To answer the question, unless things change, 2015 will be a year of 1950s US Navy carrier decks. Will probably also be the year I finally branch out into props...
