Welcome to Ron Picciani's Aviation Photography Website. If you like photos of military aircraft beginning in 1946 to 2012 you are at the right place. Unlike most websites, all of the photos I will post on this website will be scanned from the "original" color slide, color negative, or black and white negative. I own the commercial rights to all of this material, and I will list the name of the original photographer if I know it. Information is always welcome. The photos are meant for your private collection and are not to be reproduced in any manner. You are free to download the photos if you agree not to alter the text in the photos. If you alter the text in the photos, you will be blocked from the website.
For aircraft history go to :
In the summer of 1954, at the age of 14. I borrowed my father's camera, without his knowledge, and road my bicycle to the Philadelphia International Airport. That was the beginning of my hobby as an aviation photographer. Over the years I advanced to shooting color slide film and started trading with other photographers around the world. I also bought some collections from photographers who lost interest, needed money or have past on.
