Launched on the 10th August 2010 Classic Warbirds covers vintage military aircraft from the First World War, the interwar years, World War 2 and the Cold War. By using photos, graphics and videos the aim of Classic Warbirds is to bring 'vintage aircraft to life' allowing people to discover the history of these aircraft wherever they are.
The main feature of the website is a comprehensive aircraft database which profiles over 90 aircraft including the iconic Supermarine Spitfire and Avro Lancaster to the not so famous Hawker Henley and Vickers Wellesley. Every profile added to our site is well researched and covers the design, development and operational service of the aircraft and as new information becomes available is updated and, where possible, provides details on what museums the aircraft can be seen at and photos of the aircraft.
Advertising on Classic Warbirds allows you to promote your company and products to thousands of aviation enthusiasts every month.
Alongside our aircraft database we have a number of articles covering a broad range of topics, including an interactive Battle of Britain timeline and the history of invasion stripes. Just like our aircraft profiles we research our articles in-depth and as we become aware of new information update our articles accordingly. The most recent addition to Classic Warbirds is a guide to UK aviation sites which uses Google maps to mark over 300 locations so far. These are put into four categories, each under a different coloured aircraft: Museums, memorials, gate guardians and sites of interest.
Classic Warbirds also promotes the historic aircraft sector and the history of these machines, with the use of our website and social media pages we promote museum and warbird operator events, provide news, post photos, interesting links and 'on this day' facts.
