Touchdown Aviation was founded in 2004 by a group of Dutch aviation photographers who just went from analogue photography to digital SLR camera's, all shooting with Canon. Exploring the possibilities of the early digital way of capturing military aircraft we were eager to showcase our portfolio. Therfore a website was created where we showed the pictures along with some text. As digital photography was quite new and booming a webshop was part of the website where Canon camera's, lenses and accesoires were sold. This way we could advise buyers based on our own experiences in the field.

In 2008 the publication of military aviation reports and sale of camera's etc. was split up. The webshop continued as Touchdown Photo and Touchdown Aviation rebranded and launched a new website where we could better showcase our photography and video. During the years our team changed from time to time which reflects in our reports; you'll find a variety of reports, representing either the interest of our team members or timestamp of almost two decades of militairy aviation throughout the world.

In 2020 the current website was launched with most of the content recreated, aimed on a better presentation on both large screens and mobile devices. We have a team of professional editors and photo/videographers based in the Netherlands and UK.
