Welcome to Phantomaviation.nl

Phantomaviation is dedicated to military aviation and provides information about aircraft manufacturers, countries and the publication of articles or (photographic) reports. My articles and photographs have also been published by aviation magazines, please see Publications for details. Articles which have been published in a magazine will appear on Phantomaviation a few months later.

Aircraft order and production (delivery) reports are presented in the aircraft manufacturers section, by company
(alphabetically listed) and by aircraft role. The country section is more extensive. Here aircraft order and production (delivery) reports are also presented but here you can also find my articles and (photographic) reports. For several countries reports covering its defence budget and their wings and squadrons are available.

It is, unfortunately, not possible to update all content on a regular basis. Below table provides the details when updates to the website are made.

Updates are communited through my Twitter and Instagram accounts: @phantomaviation. Updates can also found below.

Disclaimer: please note information is checked with official sources (aircraft manufacturers, department of defences etc.) however, especially for older aircraft or aircraft no longer in production but operational, can contain differences. Phantomaviation is not liable for the content of this site or for its use.

Photographs and articles are not allowed to be used without prior written approval. Please contact me when you would like to use an image.
