The Aviation Historian Magazine

4 issues per year View Reviews   |   Write Review From €9,25 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magazine principals Nick Stroud and Mick Oakey, TAH uses original source material — often little-known and previously unpublished — to explore aeronautical history from its beginnings to modern jets and the birth of spaceflight.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 36  


Hawker’s iconic Hunter jet fighter was not only popular with its pilots and with the public — it was also a commercial success, exported to 22 nations over the course of a flying career spanning six decades. The cover story of this 36th quarterly issue of The Aviation Historian describes how, almost 30 years into that career, Switzerland reinvented the Hunter as a ground-attacker, equipped with the latest air-to-ground weaponry. Also in this issue, Prof Keith Hayward examines the notorious Westland Affair of 1985–86; Ralph Pegram questions whether 1930s flying-boat travel was really as glamorous as it appeared; Mark Russell explains why the RAF stuck with 0·303in machine-gun ammunition well into WW2; and the late Melvyn Hiscock considers an intriguing photo-reconnaissance Spitfire “what-if?”. All this, and much more — including a bizarre Edwardian attempt to build a flying house — is illustrated with high-quality archive photographs and bespoke artwork.
