Thanks for visiting and looking at my aviation photos. Aviation and photography are two of my favorite things so I decided to combine them. Please feel welcome to leave comments. I would like to hear what you like or don't like.

If you live in the U.S. and want to order prints please contact me direct using the email contact button below or at my email address
rcavi8tor@sbcglobal.net or 785 272-5624. I offer same day service for pick up in most cities with NO SHIPPING COSTS. Prices are listed under the "buy" button on this site. Not all sizes are available by direct order.

I primairly cover aviation events in the Midwest such as air shows, airport open houses, RC meets, museums, etc. However, there are many other events such as EAA, Blakesburg, Gathering of Mustangs, etc that create a desire to travel. After covering an event I put out an E-Newsletter article with photos describing the experience of the event. If you would like to be added to the mailing list, please contact me. All I need is your email address and an interest in aviation for you to recieve a copy by email. There is no charge for the E-Newsletter. Articles on the events are available at:

Guestbook for Don Thun Midwest Aviation Photography

I know this if out topic but I'm evaluating starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to have set up? I'm supposing by using a blog website like yours would cost a lovely dollar? I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice can be enormously appreciated. Many thanks

And i helped my grandpa take pictures of the b-29 bomber, And my grandpa is the owner of this website.
17.Jason Thun(non-registered)
Well of course he's a professional photographer.
