About the Author

Since the late 1960s Erik Simonsen has been photographing all types of military, commercial, business and sports aviation subjects. What started as a hobby has turned into part-time professional work, as Simonsen authored two photographically illustrated books, entitled Spy Planes and This is Stealth, and numerous magazine articles.
