Hear the sound of the airplane

Welcome to Air-and-Space.com (previously known as the Goleta Air & Space Museum). Its primary themes are aviation, astronomy, and astronautics. Mostly it's an excuse to post my photographs taken at airshows, air museums, and hanging around the approaches to airports and military bases, etc. Its pages also contain links to aviation and space oriented web sites.

Air-and-Space.com is a one man operation. My name is Brian Lockett. I take most of the pictures, write the captions, create the pages, and make all the arbitrary editorial decisions.

Please note: Air-and-Space.com is just my web site. It is strictly virtual. I have no brick and mortar air museum for people to visit. Air-and-Space.com is not affiliated with any other air museum, public or private. It's not nice to use my pictures on your web site without asking.*
