Spotters magazine. Published monthly since 1967, initially under the title ‘Contrail’, but this was soon changed to the present title. For many years an A4 size mimeographed publication, in the late 1980s it changed to an A5 format and added a few b+w photos. It now comprises 40-50 pages in each issue. From the start it developed a reputation for its detailed military content, and extensive coverage of Wrecks & Relics. Subjects for which some of its writers later became well known.
The magazine covers civil and military aviation in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire and also some special reports from time-to-time on other events such as airshows and overseas trips. Approximately two-thirds of the magazine’s content is devoted to civilian movements and registrations whilst the remaining third covers military matters. Typical contents comprises: Small Airfields; Fenland; Sandtoft; Humberside Airport; Leeds Bradford Airport; British Military; Military Aircraft News; G-Reg Update; Airliners & News; Bangs & Prangs; Civil Airfield News.
