The Aviation Historian Magazine

4 issues per year View Reviews   |   Write Review From $8.00 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. .. read more 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magazine principals Nick Stroud and Mick Oakey, TAH uses original source material — often little-known and previously unpublished — to explore aeronautical history from its beginnings to modern jets and the birth of spaceflight.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.  read less

Issue Cover

The Aviation Historian Magazine  |  Issue 42  


Conceived as a “fire-and-forget” missile, the Firestreak entered service in the late 1950s and paved the way for subsequent British air-launched guided weapons. In the 42nd quarterly edition of The Aviation Historian we examine its development, along with the nuts and bolts of how it worked — with the help of specially-created information graphics by Ian Bott. Also in this issue, we revisit the problematic Westland Whirlwind twin-engined fighter of WW2; trace how a pre-WW1 battleship laid down for the Chilean Navy eventually became the world’s biggest and most advanced aircraft carrier, serving the Royal Navy from 1924 to 1942; and complete our story of how unmanned B-17 Flying Fortress drones played a part in post-war American atomic tests. .. read more Plus: the UK government’s involvement in a plan to sell an advanced jet fighter design to Iraq, just ten years before RAF Tornadoes took part in Operation Desert Storm in 1991; the rise and fall of French independent airline UTA; the RAF’s use of chemical weapons; and why “base-burning” was a red-hot aerodynamic topic for combat jet designers in the 1970s. All this, and much more, is illustrated with high-quality archive photographs and bespoke artwork.  read less
