Issue Cover

FlyPast  |  May 2014  


The May 2014 issue of FlyPast, Britain’s biggest selling aviation monthly, brings you the in-depth story of one of the biggest warbird stories to reach British shores for many years. Backed up by stunning air-to-air photography, we speak to the Canadian organisation that is bringing Avro Lancaster B.X FM213 to the UK this summer, where it will fly alongside the world’s only other airworthy Lancaster, the BBMF’s PA474. This once in a lifetime tour is not to be missed, and FlyPast has the full story behind it. .. read more

FLYING FORTRESS
FlyPast also pays tribute to another iconic World War Two bomber, the four-engined Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress. Our 25-page Spotlight section profiles the machine, the men behind it, its use in combat, and features exclusive colour artwork.

COUNTDOWN TO D-DAY
As we approach the 70th anniversary of the Allied invasion of Normandy, we present a special section detailing how both sides planned their actions in the days and weeks leading up to June 6, 1944.

STIRLING OF THE LAKE
Lt Col Bengt Fransson recounts the tragic tale of a Short Stirling lost during the liberation of Norway.

AUSTRALIAN WARBIRDS
John Parker visits Ross Pay’s expanding stable of historic aircraft in New South Wales.

BRONCO RETURNS
The Bronco Demo Team is making a welcome return to the airshow circuit. Ben Dunnell talks to pilot Tony du Bruyn about his recovery from an accident and future plans for the team.

We also take a special trip behind-the-scenes, visiting the RAF Museum’s rarely-seen storage facility at Stafford, and wrap up warm for two Cold War-themed night photography shoots at Farnborough and Bruntingthorpe. Shlomo Aloni looks at the unlikely use of the Harvard as an attack aircraft in Israeli hands, and we bring you news of the mighty Douglas DC-10 bowing out of civil service, and a Hawker Typhoon on its way to Canada.  read less

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.
