Issue Cover

FlyPast  |  August 2013  


The 122-page August 2013 edition of FlyPast is available to download now. This issue features an exclusive report and images of a UK-based Curtiss P-40M Kittyhawk which has been dramatically repainted. Featuring a new red spinner and a distinctive skull motif, we bring you the full story behind the return of this fantastic machine – you won’t read it anywhere else. Darren Harbar goes air-to-air with the fighter from its North Weald base.

DORNIER AND VULCAN NEWS
Also included is an account of the remarkable recovery of the last surviving Dornier Do 17 bomber, and we bring you news of an English Electric Lightning being brought back to health at Bruntingthorpe, the sale of a huge US warbird collection, the restoration of a Tornado and the intriguing prospect of Avro Vulcan XH558 potentially remaining airworthy until the end of 2015.

SPOTLIGHT ON THE DEFIANT
Our popular Spotlight section focuses on the Boulton Paul Defiant, the ill-fated Battle of Britain turret-fighter that found a new lease of life when reassigned to night operations.

THE WAY WE WERE
The latest in our regular series on squadron histories looks back on the achievements of 216 Squadron, the RAF’s airlift specialists.

DAMBUSTERS
We pay tribute to both the Dambusters and the men of the USAAF Eighth Air Force, with photos from two memorial flypasts.

SPITFIRE LEADER
Contributor Barry Marsden details the career of a courageous wartime Spitfire pilot.

MUSEUMS
With a look behind the scenes at the de Havilland Aircraft Centre, a visit to Sywell Aviation Museum, all the latest airshow reviews and much more, the new FlyPast is not to be missed.
