Facebook just announced that they now made available the new Facebook Timeline feature to everyone worldwide.
One of the features of the timeline is the large image, called cover, that is located at the top of the users profile page.

Besides photography I am also a big fan of aviation world. I have quite a few images with aircrafts so I selected a few to release under public domain.
As some of our visitor are using the images in educational purposes I have assembled a list of links and some collections for quick access to images related to education or that can be used in school projects.
This is both aimed to students and teachers.
List will be updated as more areas are added.
Here it follows.
