Subtitled ‘Toute L’Aeronautique et Son Histoire’. An aviation history magazine presenting profiles of aircraft types, air forces and distinguished pilots from history. Covers all periods of aviation history from the earliest days, in many countries. Many subjects are covered in-depth over several issues. A4 size magazine with 62-64 pages in each issue. Illustrated by many b+w photos, scale line drawings, cutaway line drawings, colour 3-view drawings and several pages of colour profile drawings. The first issue was published in March 1993.
This is an excellent magazine with a very good reputation for well-researched original feature articles. It is especially good at covering some of the lesser-known aircraft types and of rarely publicised aircraft operators. Unfortunately in the last two or three years it has developed an obsession with articles on fighter aces which has begun to crowd-out articles on other topics.
The publisher has also produced a number of ‘Hors Serie’ specials. Each one covering a unique subject, with well-researced original text, previously unknown photos and good colour profiles.
