Abstract:
The use of airplanes for astronomical observations began in the 1920's. From then until the early 1960's, almost all of the observations made from aircraft were for the purpose of viewing solar eclipses. Due to advances in technology and increasing interest in infrared astronomy, the use of airplanes for astronomy expanded during the 1960's to include planetary observations and a wide range of other studies. This paper describes some of the major milestones of airborne astronomy, from the1920's to the present.
