Propliner Information Exchange

Ralph M. Pettersen's Propliner Information Exchange Website



NOTE: I WILL "OFF THE GRID" FROM 11-30 MARCH 2019. I WILL ONLY HAVE INTERMITTANT ACCESS TO MY EMAILS AND WILL NOT BE ABLE TO UPDATE THE WEBSITE
While Propliners are a dying breed, there is still a lot of news to report from the United States and around the world. I’ve been photographing these aircraft since the late 1960’s and writing about them since 1992. I’ve written 150+ articles for magazines such as Propliner, Air Classics, Warbirds International Airliners, Aeroplane Monthly and the AAHS Journal. I’m currently the Propliner Editor for Air Classics and Warbirds International Airport. This website is meant to complement my Constellation Survivors website and thus will not include any Constellation news. While I write a Propliner Round-Up article for Air Classics once or twice a year, my goal with the website is to provide Propliner news in a more timely manner. I hope you enjoy the website and find it useful.
