‘Aviation Classics’ was a series of 132 page high-quality glossy publications centred on the world’s greatest aircraft, the events in which they played crucial roles and those who flew, maintained and supported them. Each issue usually comprised an in-depth profile of a single aircraft type, although a few issues looked instead at specific aircraft companies: SAAB, Lockheed Martin and also Alenia Aermacchi, and two issues looked at aerial warfare: WW1 fighter aces, and the Battle of Britain.

Although not very original in terms of subjects, the series was well written and very well illustrated with photograohs and drawings, and generally received warm reviews.
