John Dibbs - Photography & Consultancy


We have been at the forefront of air-to-air photography for over 20 years and during that time John's photographs have been published widely around the world in aviation magazines, books and calendars, including the famous Flying Legends Calendar.  

Flying Legends Calendar

The Plane Picture Company publishes the Flying Legends Calendar which is launched each year at the Flying Legends Airshow. 

The 16 month calendar showcases John's award winning warbird photography and has over the years featured many of the most famous piston-engined aircraft of all time captured in their natural environment. 

The photographs are reproduced to the highest standards and are ideal for framing.


John’s striking images have adorned the covers of numerous aircraft magazines including Warbird Digest, Flight JournalAviation History and Air & Space in the US, FlyPast and Aeroplane in the UK and J-Wings in Japan. These images also regularly form the basis of articles in the magazines.  A few of the more than 800 cover images credited to John are showcased below.


We have also published a series of highly acclaimed books featuring John's distinctive style of photography. We oversee all aspects of publication from concept to publication and to date have published 20 books with more in the pipeline.

“John’s photography captures both the beauty and drama of a WWII aircraft in flight. From a sleek fighter seemingly inches from your face to a huge bomber lost in a sweeping skyscape. His images offer veterans the chance to admire their trusted mounts, now that the combat is past and gives future generations the opportunity to remember the times and the sacrifice”.

Colonel Don Blakeslee, USAF retired, Foreword to The High Battleground

“I knew John Dibbs by reputation long before I met him – a reputation that placed him at the fore front of the world’s leading aviation photographers. I believe that his talents are uniquely suited to capturing the character of the Mustang on film”.

Lt Bob Goebel, USAF retired, Foreword to P-51 Mustang: Flying Legends
