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:

Don you are amazing with your camera. I visit your website on a regular basis and enjoy all your pictures.
Keep up the good work and I hope to visit with you again soon at one of the R/C IMAA or Warbird events.
I just want to leave you with a big "Attaboy". Now I need to practice flying straight and level to give you a Photo-op.
