Things In and Around Airplanes
For many years part of our business was developing flight simulation software.
Our development activities had us traveling to many airports, airshows, exhibitions, conferences, flights and museums to conduct research for various software projects.
These photographs of “all things aviation related” are part of the activities that later turned into flight simulation products or events that I encountered while traveling.
Looking back this was an interesting and very enjoyable part of flying or looking up at the sky that span many years.
We hope that you enjoy these photos.
