Dear Victor, These images are amazing! We are working on a Wingwalker display and Margi gave us a link to your images. We need a hi-res version of MNTR3900. Please contact me at the email address.

Mr. Archer, I have a site for past employees of Pacific Air Lines and Southwest Airways. It's at Is there a possibility of using your photograph of a Pacific Air Lines DC3 tail number 63107? It's a photo of the plane landing. I will, as with the other aviation photographers, give you credit for the picture. Also, do you have other photos of either Pacific Air Lines or Southwest Airways aircraft. If you do then I would be happy to created a separate "Collection" for folks to view. Aircraft collections are shown on the bottom of our "Aircraft" page.

Hi there, I was browsing some of your Reno air race 2011 pictures and I came across a picture of myself and one of the girls I model with.. I was wondering if you had anymore?

Fantastic Photography!!!

In 1957 my husband was stationed at Los Alamitos NAS. In 1960 he was killed in a P2V Neptune Bomber. The plan crashed off the coast of Dana Point CA. Recently I have received sonar images of his plan underwater, this has been a shock turn of events. I found your web side and wonder if your father had any more information abut the photo that he took in 1957. Thanks

Hi.Victor, I came across you in a forum,just browsing around,talking about LeVier and associates 7 cosmic winds.Would you be interested in seeing photos of the cosmic wind # 3 Little Toni in construction,in Tonys front yard.Fuselage, no wings ,construction from start to finish.I dont believe anyone has ever looked at these photos.I would be intersted in talking to you because of your experience in photography and book publishing.Give me a shout and I will tell you some interesting things.

Dear Victor,

Habe das Buch ihres Vaters "The Republic F-105 American Aircraft Series-1" seit 1969 in meinem Besitz. Dies ist ein Teil meiner Jugend und ich schaue immer gerne wieder hinein.
Damit möchte ich Ihnen sagen das Ihr Vater nicht vergessen ist. Sehr schön sind die von Ihnen eingestellten Bilder.
Ich grüsse Sie herzlichst aus Germany und hoffe sie können meine Zeilen übersetzen.

Congratulations !!!!!!! Perfect Pictures,I love it. I am a big fan of "Strega" , so your photos are really a gift for me, cause I am building a radiocontrol-replica of this bird and so I need all information I could get, especially all those advertisments stickers and stencils. Your pictures are helping a lot ! >>

Hello Victor, I am trying to get in touch with you, because I want to buy a picture from you...Could you contact me pls????
Guest 12-Nov-2008 03:51
Love you aviation pictures. I used to work on planes. You know what you hardly ever see?? A dramatic or "sexy" shot on an A7e Corsair. I'd love to see one!
Ike Dioyos 30-Oct-2008 00:50
Dear Victor:
You did a great job on the ANRA race this weekend. I have some racer friends inquiring about buying some pictures from you and how to go about purchasing any photos.
DRay Bingham 18-Sep-2008 21:30
Enjoying your website and collection of pictures. Have been an aviation buff since my first days at Oakland Naval Air Station. Also did 4 years at "Los Alamitos Naval Air Station". Thanks for sharing your work with us.
Bruce Cairns 21-May-2008 21:30
Came across your galleries while looking for photos of the May 17-18 2008 Chino Airshow. Wow. You have a great eye. Really like the shots from last year's Gathering of Mustangs. The sepia-toned close-up of Steven Hinton in the cockpit is terrific. Thank you for sharing and giving me something to aspire to in my own photography!

Guest 24-Mar-2007 18:09
Victor your air show photos set the bar for me. Amazing panning shots and you put the soft 100-400 zoom talk to rest. Your fathers pictures are very special and may be my favorite for sentimental and nostalgia reasons.

I see something very different for your particular set of pictures but I can't quite put my finger on it.
Einar Johannessen02-Jun-2006 06:41
Thanks for stopping by my galleries and your favourable remarks. Coming from an expert like you, they are all the more appreciated. Your father's images brought back some memories! I was 11 in 1955 and consumed everything I could find about the aviation world.
Jon Gourley 29-Apr-2006 17:50
Thank you for the wonderful pictures of the biplane class. I hope that you can make it back to Reno in 06'. Come by the pit any time for a cold beverage or a shady place to sit.
Jon "Jonny Rocket" Gourley, Race #2
Tom Aberle 21-Apr-2006 23:11
It is great to see the biplane class fully represented. Thank you for including what is for me a very exciting and competitive class. I would hope to see some more, and published elsewhere too. Hope to see you at Reno in September. We hope to also post new records (again) this year.
Blake Waller 19-Apr-2006 22:10
Hi, We are a start up company wanting to put together a vintage aircraft plane that could be sold at airshows. Visit to see the promotional side of our efforts. Your photos are great. Could we use some of the images?

Hi Victor - Warm greetings from Ketchikan, Alaska! I'm a big fan of your Air Racing photography, but going through your wonderful galleries was truly inspiring for me as a fellow photographer. I would like to ask about purchasing some of your Huntington Beach sunset photos in custom photo enlargements as a gift for my brother in law Jeff, who has a home in Seal Beach. His wife, Sue is from Seal Beach, and Jeff grew up in Long Beach and is an avid surfer and former lifeguard. Was hoping to find a Seal Beach pier photo comparable to some of the spectacular HB shots, but none posted here even come close. Would like to inquire if you might perhaps have some more lively shots of the SB pier in your photo library that aren't posted that my wife & I could see. If not, we've found three shots we really like from the HB series. What are your enlargement print sizes & prices? Do you offer custom matting & framing services? That would be great, and would like to have a framed print(s) shipped direct to Jeff & Sue at their Seal Beach address as a gift. Please let us know what you might be able to do to accomodate this request. Thanks again for the 'eye candy' and look forward to your reply. Hope to have the pleasure of meeting you in person, perhaps next year at the air races. Have a great New Year! Sincerely - Don
Guest 05-Jan-2006 21:52
Victor: I enjoyed your "Philly 1955" air show pics. Are they scanned from slides? They are in excellent condition! I'm an aviation nut from way back (I was 7 years old in 1955) and I enjoyed going through this gallery and naming the various planes.

I will enjoy seeing the additional 40 pics you mention.

I never tire of perusing your great photos, especially the close ups that show things we never get to see on the ramp or in the stands. This was my 21st year in a row.
