The Aviation Historian Magazine

4 issues per year View Reviews   |   Write Review From $14.50 per issue Combining the permanence of a book with the diversity of a magazine, TAH is a boldly independent quarterly journal aimed at aviation’s “true believers” — anyone with a deep and abiding passion for the history of mankind’s quest to master the skies. If you want to take your interest to a new level, beyond the mainstream magazines available in the newsagents’ shops and online, TAH is for you. It will tell you things you never knew, and show you aircraft you have never seen. It will give you goosebumps; it will make you smile. It will expand your horizons and help you see the bigger picture of how flying has shaped and influenced humanity.

Brought to you by experienced former Aeroplane magazine principals Nick Stroud and Mick Oakey, TAH uses original source material — often little-known and previously unpublished — to explore aeronautical history from its beginnings to modern jets and the birth of spaceflight. It encompasses military and civil flying, the “golden era” between the World Wars, the Cold War, and many less familiar corners of the past.

Issue Cover

The Aviation Historian Magazine  |  Issue 38  


Did you know that, during World War Two, a plan was being hatched to build Boeing B-29 Superfortresses in the UK, and power them with Bristol Centaurus engines? Read all about why — and why in the end it didn’t happen — in this 38th quarterly edition of The Aviation Historian. Also in this issue, continuing our mission to explore the lesser-known paths of flying history, we complete our two-part history of Ethiopian Airlines; look at the development of the outboard tailplane concept (think Virgin SpaceShip); and examine some ill-fated French naval fighter jet prototypes of the 1940s. We also look back at the early years of aviation in Siam; how civilian pilots flew seriously tooled-up light aircraft as part of the British South Africa Police Reserve Air Wing in Rhodesia; and pleasure-flying at Butlin’s holiday camps. All this, and much more — including the political background to Britain’s return to full membership of the Airbus fold in the late 1970s, and whether the Supermarine Scimitar could ever have been made into a world-class carrier fighter — is illustrated with high-quality archive photographs and bespoke artwork.
Combining the permanence of a book with the diversity of a magazine, TAH is a boldly independent quarterly journal aimed at aviation’s “true believers” — anyone with a deep and abiding passion for the history of mankind’s quest to master the skies. If you want to take your interest to a new level, beyond the mainstream magazines available in the newsagents’ shops and online, TAH is for you. It will tell you things you never knew, and show you aircraft you have never seen. It will give you goosebumps; it will make you smile.

It encompasses military and civil flying, the “golden era” between the World Wars, the Cold War, and many less familiar corners of the past.

Blending high-quality information, stunning archive photographs, uncluttered design and unrivalled graphics into a compact 132-page package four times a year, TAH is unlike any other aviation publication.
