The Aviation Historian Magazine Issue 5 Back Issue

English 35 Reviews   •  English   •   Aviation & Transport (Aviation) Only $13.99
Opening the throttles for our second year of publication, our fifth quarterly issue takes off with a major feature about a novice pilot — with just 40hr of solo time logged — who in 1930 set out to fly his newly-acquired Moth from England to Australia. What happened to him? Read the full story in TAH! Much closer to modern times, we reveal newly-declassified information about the USA’s plan to lend an aircraft carrier to Britain during the Falklands War in 1982; and, from the late 1950s, the heart-stopping story of how an RAF Avro Vulcan V-bomber narrowly missed disaster in New Zealand. Looking at a familiar subject from an unusual angle, we chart the post-war racing career of Hawker Hurricane “The Last of The Many”; and for lovers of the unusual we examine the Douglas O-38’s military career in Peru, Piaggio P.166 operations around the diamond mines of Sierra Leone, and a 1940s Italian lightplane which is so obscure that it never appeared in “Jane’s All The World’s Aircraft”. All these stories, and many more, are 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 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magazine principals Nick Stroud and Mick Oakey, TAH uses original source material — often little-known and previously unpublished — to explore aeronautical history from its beginnings to modern jets and the birth of spaceflight.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.

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.
