Abstract and Keywords

Aeronautical archaeology is not a highly developed area of study in today's time. However, there is a phenomenal amount of data in the form of photograph, drawing, manuscripts, and manuals that demonstrates important contributions that aeronautical archaeology can provide to understanding historical perspectives, technological advancements, and period construction practices. Aircraft sites have tremendous archaeological possibility for providing a historic record to help in the understanding of the evolution of aeronautical technology. Although many restoration works have taken place, there is little documentation of the same, hence, it is possible that some valuable data have been lost. Approaches to aeronautical archaeology must continue to evolve and must be used for gaining a better understanding of the context and the times in which these objects were developed and used.

Keywords: aeronautical archaeology, construction practices, aeronautical technology, aircraft sites, historic record, restoration works
