‘BAR’ started life as the magazine of the Blackbushe Aviation Research Group – a spotters society associated with the local airfield of that name. During the 1970s the Group changed it’s name to that given above. The magazine was published monthly from 1958 onwards. Although it provided comprehensive coverage of UK and US military aviation, the space devoted to overseas air forces was generally very small. Each issue covered aircraft, units and activities together with details of serials, accidents etc. An A5 size magazine with 32-40 pages each, illustrated with b+w photos. Publication ceased after Volume 41 in 1999.

BARG also published ‘Roundel’ (ISSN ? ), a quarterly magazine which concentrated on the historical aspects of UK military units, serials, manufacturers etc in a similar style to Air-Britain’s ‘Aeromilitaria’ (see above). Volume 13 was for 1989. This also ceased publication in 1999.
