Issue Cover

The Aviation Historian Magazine  |  Issue 23  


Who’d have thought that, in 2007, parts from a 1950s jet fighter would be grafted on to a helicopter emblematic of the 1960s — using pieces of boat and armoured personnel carrier to connect them — to enable that helicopter to drop bombs more familiar from the Gulf War of 1991? Yes, it really happened, and you can read the full story in this 23rd quarterly edition of The Aviation Historian. More predictably, perhaps, we mark the centenary of the Royal Air Force, by taking a look at the reasoning behind the service’s establishment in 1918 — but did the RAF’s doctrine initially head off in the wrong direction? Elsewhere in this issue we look at how Lockheed seems to have suffered from an aerodynamic blind-spot in its design of the P-38 Lightning fighter; at the short and inglorious career of the Sepecat Jaguar in Nigeria; and at how trimotors flew to the Channel Islands long before Aurigny’s recently-retired Britten-Norman Trislanders. Plus: how Garuda adopted Convair 990s; the first male pilot to fly solo from the UK to New Zealand; a Hawker Siddeley 748 sales tour of Africa; the political machinations behind the ill-fated Fairey Rotodyne; and how the futuristic-looking SNCASO Narval twin-boomed fighter fell short of expectations. All this, and much more, is illustrated with high-quality archive photographs and bespoke artwork.
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magazine principals Nick Stroud and Mick Oakey, TAH uses original source material — often little-known and previously unpublished — to explore aeronautical history from its beginnings to modern jets and the birth of spaceflight.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.

Blending high-quality information, stunning archive photographs, uncluttered design and unrivalled graphics into a compact 132-page package four times a year, TAH is unlike any other aviation publication.

I'm a plane and a cold war enthusiast. I thought the images in the magazine were fantasic and the read was very interesting. It is something I will return to again I'm sure.
