Chris  Dilley Gallery
                                     This picture was most recently updated   Tuesday, June 26, 2007

Chris Dilley takes a nice airplane picture. I met him on the internet when he sent me some pictures of a restored C-7 Caribou. After he visited AeroKnow web pages, he sent me some more pics, and I invited to him to share some with the AeroKnow Visitor Gallery, it became evident that Chris deserves a page of his own.

Each picture here is thumbnailed for faster loading. Click on any for a larger (about 4 x 6 inches at 72 dpi) and "back" to return to this page.

If you're an author, publisher or airplane enthusiast who would like to obtain a picture for publication or purchase. e-mail Chris,

Iif you take a good picture, you  should have your own gallery page. In return for your easily forgotten $10 (cheap), I will post up to 40 of your best pictures on a new AeroKnow page. You don't have to create your own web site; and believe me, it's easier to send me a pictures than it is to fiddle with a web site. If people want to purchase or publish your pictures, they may contact YOU directly as they may contact Chris. If this sounds like a useful proposition, e me --
