Issue Cover

Aeroplane  |  No.486 The Grace Spitfire  


Over the past several years Avro Vulcan B.2 XH558/G-VLCN The Spirit of Great Britain has impressed many thousands of people at air shows and other events the length and breadth of the country. It was thought that this year could have been the last flying season for the V-bomber, but
Vulcan to the Sky has recently launched Operation 2015, which is planned to release sufficient additional flying hours for XH558 to continue flying until 2015. To be able to fl y in 2014 and 2015, XH558 needs to be given a strengthening modification to the leading edges of its wings. This will be done after the Vulcan’s winter servicing programme, but in order to be ready to fly at the beginning of the 2014 season the parts for the modification must be designed and made this year. Therefore Vulcan to the Sky needs to raise £400,000 by November 2013. Anyone wishing to support the fundraising effort can do so by making a pledge of £10 or more and then donating the sum pledged by November. Alternatively, for £75 or more your name will be added inside XH558’s bomb-bay doors. There are other ways to support Operation 2015 too, just turn to the advertisement on page 25 to find out more. Here at Aeroplane we are launching a new initiative of our own. The Aeroplane; 75 Years Ago will reproduce in digital form all the editorial pages of the weekly issues of The Aeroplane from 1938 as well as all the advertisement pages redolent of a bygone world. Readers can follow the major events of the Second World War as they unfolded, including the Battle of Britain, the “Dam Busters” raid and D-Day. Starting with Neville Chamberlain’s historic visit to meet Adolf Hitler at Berchtesgaden chronicled in the September 21, 1938 issue, you can follow the
build-up to the Second World War and the air war itself as it unfolded in the pages of The Aeroplane.
To sample the first issue of The Aeroplane; 75 Year Ago absolutely free, go to www.pocketmags.com and search

I have been a major fan of Aeroplane for over fifty years.More power to you arm!! Reviewed Thursday, August 20, 2020

As an American I don't see alot of British a/c in our magazines other than the usual Hurricanes, Spits, and so forth. And I have learned more about the RAF flying more American a/c such as the NA F-86 and the B-29 that you don't read about in American publications. Reviewed Thursday, August 13, 2020
