Welcome to our 482 galleries of 9028 aviation stock photos of airline, military, corporate, private, air show, warbirds and cargo aircraft dating back 53 years to 1961, plus historical government photos dating back to 1929. Buy your stock photo licensing rights directly from the photographer at prices lower than stock photo companies and teams of photographers. We are a mom and pop partnership with 51% ownership by Karen Boyd, Don's wife.

Don is a three time winner in Aviation Week & Space Technology's annual photo contest (2nd in 1995, 3rd in 1997 and 1st in 1999) in the civil category and has been published in Aviation Week, Airliners, Airways, Air Line Pilot, Propliner, Airway (Taiwan), Flight International, New Zealand Geographic, ENR Engineering News-Record, Airline Pilot Careers, New Times-Broward and Palm Beach, Newsday, WABC-TV and WCBS-TV news broadcasts, wire services in major newspapers, annual reports, etc. We have been providing high resolution images to advertising agencies, airlines, book publishers and other aviation industry companies since October 2000. Most of our photos on this site were taken with the Fuji S2 Pro, Nikon D200 and D300 digital cameras, and now with the Nikon D800E camera, but there are also numerous 35mm print and Kodachrome slide scans.

Our galleries are separated into similar subject matters that should make viewing by your interest easier. Search note: PBase has a search feature allowing you to search for photos by registration number, aircraft type, airline, airline code, airport code, etc., in order to expedite your search of needed photos. Unless otherwise noted, all images on this site are copyrighted 1961 thru 2014 by Sunbird Photos by Don Boyd. Our e-mail address is SunbirdPhotos@gmail.com and our telephone number is 305-401-9225.

Please bear in mind that virtually all of the photos on this site are highly compressed JPG files saved at low or low/medium quality to reduce file size and storage space. Speaking of quality, unlike most aviation stock photo sites which sell images taken in JPG file format, most of our stock photos are shot in RAW and converted to TIF files which far exceed JPG files in image quality.
