‘Aviation Age’ was an aerospace trade publication similar to ‘Aviation Week’ which consistently took a rather sensationalistic approach to its coverage of the Russian air threat. It was edited by Richard E. Stockwell and published between 1950 and May 1958 (at least). The December 1952 issue was already Vol.18 No.6 – with six issues per volume it must have been launched circa early 1944 under another title. In 1958 it became ‘Space Aeronautics’ (ISBN: 0885-9485) which was published until 1970.
Note: Not connected to ‘Aviation Age’ was the first aviation magazine ever published in America – in 1912 – which was founded by aircraft designer William B. Stout.
