About Us


Launched on the 10th August 2010 Classic Warbirds profiles military aircraft from the First World War, inter-war years, Second World War and 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 aim of Classic Warbirds is to build a comprehensive military aircraft database profiling aircraft from a variety of nations. We currently have over 95 profiles online, ranging from the famous Supermarine Spitfire and Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress to the less well known Vickers Wellesley and Curtiss Hawk 75. 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, photos and details on what museums the aircraft can be seen at.

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. We also have an interactive guide to UK aviation museums and sites of interest which uses Google maps to mark over 200 locations and lets people discover the aviation history in their area.

Complimenting this website we have an ever growing following on social media. From our daily posts on Facebook and twitter covering all the latest news, museum events and on this day facts to our YouTube channel featuring videos from airshows and museums.

In addition we also support aviation museums and aircraft restoration projects in the UK by posting news, events and project updates on our social media pages, providing free advertising on our website and making donations from our advertising revenue.

We have given free advertising on our website and/or made a donation to Vulcan to the Sky, Avro Shackleton (WR693), Battle of Britain Memorial at Capel-le-Ferne, Newark Air Museum, International Bomber Command Centre, Avro Heritage Museum, Avro Lancaster 'Just Jane' (NX611), Models for Heroes, The People's Mosquito and The Whirlwind Fighter Project.
