FlyPast Magazine February 2013 Back Issue

English 208 Reviews   •  English   •   Aviation & Transport (Aviation) Only £4.99
The February 2013 issue of Britain's top-selling aviation monthly is certainly not one to be missed. Our cover star is that most popular of airshow performers, Avro Vulcan B.2 XH558. As much loved as the mighty delta is, we investigate whether this season might prove to be the jet's swansong. We go behind the scenes to talk to the Vulcan's owners about the mountain they have to climb to keep her flying, and their plans for her retirement.

SPITFIRE SPOTLIGHT
Our 22-page Spotlight section this time profiles what is arguably the world's most popular historic aircraft, the Supermarine Spitfire. As well as describing its role in combat, and looking at the men that flew it, we examine its history, compare it to it other fighters of the day, and publish cutaway artwork of a Spitfire F.21. Also includes exclusive artwork of 'Screwball' Beurling's Malta-based Mk.V.

USAAF FIGHTER ACE
Don Strait was the 365th Fighter Group's 'top gun'. He talked to Warren E Thompson about his time flying fighters during the war.

CORSAIR AND 'ZERO'
'Moose' Peterson profiles two of the touring warbirds belonging to Texas Flying Legends.

AIR-TO-AIR SUPREMO
We look at how Richard Clarke pushed the boundaries of air-to-air photography, and publish some of his stunning work.

LUFTWAFFE ALBUM
Ernst Neubauer's images provide unusual insight into a German medium bomber unit, as renowned Luftwaffe historian Chris Goss explains.

Plus, our resident warbird pilot Dave Unwin gets aloft in a B-25 Mitchell, our series on famous manufacturers delves deep into the history of Percival and Hunting, we visit the Cavanaugh Flight Museum in Dallas, and examine the restoration of a genuine Supermarine Swift jet in Yorkshire. Plus all the lastest restoration and museum news.

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.
