Welcome to Touchdown Aviation!

Military Aviation Photography, Reports, Publications and Video since 2004

Military Aviation Photography

This is where our roots lie. Photographing military aircraft when we were teenagers, spending days along the fence at our local air bases or farther away and abroad.

Reports and publications

The photography evolved and we were curious about the story behind the men and woman flying those magnificent machines. We discover and share that story, not only at this website but in various magazines all over the world.

Video

With text and photos you can tell the story. But with video things really come to life. You can hear and see what we saw on our adventures or relive your favorite airshow visit.
