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 281 different subtypes of 57 types, for a grand total of about 128,430 individual airplanes. I am clearly insane...

What's new here...

September 29, 2015: Hi. Doing some cleaning out of desktop folders this week, so I thought I'd post my terribly incomplete starter page for the Rooskie Il-28 Beagle bomber (right here). Barely scratched the surface of this plane, but wanted to get it out there before stuff gets busy at home this holiday season. As always, my fantastic readers will surely bail me out on this one :).

August 19, 2015: Still adding stuff, something new shows up every day. Hey, if you were a pilot and you still have your old flight logbooks, drop me a line.

June 4, 2015: Going to spend the rest of the summer filling in blanks and adding bits and bobs. Keep those emails coming!
