Subtitled The World Aviation News Monthly. ‘Air-Britain News’ started off in January 1972 as an A5 size magazine of 22 pages, with the sole b+w photograph on the front cover. The contents was entirely civil-based, comprising: U.K. Register changes; Around & About – airfield reports; Deliveries – new civil aircraft production; Commercial Scene – airline news and production list updates; Overseas Registers – updates for various European countries.
By 1999 the magazine had expanded to a page size half-way between A5 and A4, with 150-160 pages of shiny paper allowing several b+w photos inside and colour covers. The contents now comprised a much more balanced view of aviation developments worldwide, with registrations and airline news from many countries, together with some military news. Regular sections include: Noticeboard, UK Register, Around & About, US Register, Overseas Registers, Aircraft Deliveries, Display Diary, Hot Air Ballooning, Derelict & Preserved, Military Aviation, Police Aviation Research, Production, Biz-Props, Biz-Jets, Commercial Airline News, Commercial Scene.
