We make finding your preferred image(s) easy

To date, we have published 1000s of images and hope to increase the number considerably in the future. We continuously optimize the open-search function to make finding pictures and related information more effortless. 

1. The top horizontal navigation bar with a drop-down menu in NEW, LOCKHEED CLASSICS, SHOP, and RESSOURCES represents the content of zoggavia's website.

2. In FIND YOUR IMAGES, you can enter search criteria and combinations to find your preferred picture(s). Some Pre-defined criteria help you to get started.

Under RESOURCES, there is the HELP section, where we give hints and tips on how you get the full benefit from Zoggavia. Boolean operators help you refine your search. For instance:

  • L049 Constellation or L049 AND Constellation will return all images that have both words in their metadata
  • L049 OR Constellation will return images with either the "L049" word or the "Constellation" word in their metadata. Note that the OR operator must be in capital letters.
  • "L049 Constellation" will return images that match the exact phrase "L049 Constellation."
  • Takeoff OR landing AND L049 will show images of L049 taking off and landing (the "AND" is optional)
  • A AND B OR C AND D AND E OR F means "A AND D AND (B OR C OR E OR F)"
