FlyPast Magazine February 2014 Back Issue

English
207 Reviews   •  English   •   Aviation & Transport (Aviation)
Only $6.99
February’s packed 124-page issue of FlyPast is a must-have collector’s edition for all historic aircraft enthusiasts. It features two special sections, one dedicated to the Supermarine Spitfire, perhaps the most famous aircraft of any description ever built, and one to a less celebrated warrior of World War Two, the Armstrong Whitworth Whitley. Our exclusive Spitfire Legend special presents a series of articles and images focusing on the fighter’s heritage and a few of those that still fly today. On top of that, our regular Spotlight section offers 22 pages of Whitley coverage, looking back at the machines, the operations and the brave crews that flew them.

V FOR VICTOR
Ian Finch witnesses Handley Page Victor K.2 XL231 ‘Lusty Lindy’ firing up at Elvington to celebrate a special anniversary.

RETURN OF THE HURRICANE
Darren Harbar profiles a Battle of France-era Hawker Hurricane that has returned ‘home’, with exclusive photography of this magnificent warbird.

COSFORD UNCOVERED
Ken Ellis visits the award-winning Michael Beetham Conservation Centre at Cosford during its special open week.

INVADER HIT!
Navigator Charles W Hinton recalls a terrifying moment flying in a B-26 Invader over North Korea.

MOSQUITO JAILBREAK
Seventy years ago this month a daring Mosquito raid resulted in an unlikely prison breakout.

We also bring you news of another Supermarine Spitfire that has made its first post-restoration flight from Biggin Hill, new colours for one of the RNHF’s Fairey Swordfish biplanes, and an extraordinary Great War-related discovery in a garage in Wales. We also visit the Gatow Aviation Museum in Berlin, and hear from former jet pilot Nigel Walpole who reflects on flying the Hawker Hunter in Aden.

Digital subscription for Flypast magazine

I have purchased the Flypast magazine for many years and generally as a hard copy. However, for the last couple of years l have subscribed annually to the digital version and now read on my iPad.
The magazine is great and I always find the content interesting and varied and never bored with the topics covered. Whilst previously enjoying the hard copy l am now a devoted digital subscriber and would recommend this version. On the downside you miss out on add ons such as calendars etc.
