‘Revista Aeronautica’ is the official magazine of the Bolivian Air Force. It first apppeared in 1952 under the title ‘Revista Aerea Militar’, but changed its name to the present title in 1965. It has appeared more-or-less annually ever since. Issue 42 appeared in 1994 and issue 47 in 2001.
The magazine takes the form of a yearbook, with well over 100 pages in each issue. The main content is a series of short feature articles on the activities and key events of the FAB over the past year. Some historical articles are also included. Unfortunately, in recent issues the photographs illustrating the magazine have become almost exclusively of people in full dress uniform, and the missions flown and equipment operated by these personnel hardly ever gets shown. Compared to similar magazines from Colombia and Venezuela, the recent editions of this magazine are a very poor effort.
