To provide aviation enthusiasts worldwide with
informative pages, backgrounds, and visual aids for learning, research, or any other aviation-related needs.
What is Global Aircraft?
Global Aircraft is a website designed to inform the world
about aviation and its history. It is an excellent resource about planes with pictures, specifications, and backgrounds on planes from
all around the world. Global Aircraft is more than a simple collection of aircraft pages. It allows you to ask questions about anything
aviation related, chat with other aviation aficionados, win awards, play games, and much more.
History of Global Aircraft
Global Aircraft was founded on the Geocities server on
August 12, 2000. This marked the starting point of the Global Aircraft website. While on this server, it went through 2 major design layouts;
a red-curved background, and a completely flash layout - however, the completely flash layout didn't last long because of its compatibility problems.
Around June 2001, the website was moved over to the tripod server for PERL file testing and extra storage space. This is the time the
blue and green layout (similar to the one used today) was adopted. Hosting there lasted for about 4 months. On October 6, 2001, the GAC server
was moved to globalaircraft.org, where it is to this day hosted by dreamhost.
Through all these servers and layouts, the purpose of Global Aircraft has always remained the same -- to teach people about aviation
and aircraft of the past, present, and future.
