‘SEAR – South East Air Review’ was a monthly spotters magazine. First published in 1962, it was initially a regional publication, covering both civil and military aviation, but by the late 1970s the contents was exclusively military. ‘SEAR’ developed a reputation for providing good coverage of UK, USA and particularly overseas military aviation. On the latter subject it far exceeded it’s rival ‘BAR’ in quality and quantity. In January 1986 it was renamed ‘Air’ (ISSN 0267-9124) to better reflect it’s national and international scope. In December 1992 it suddenly ceased publication, due apparently to falling membership numbers. Thus was lost the best source in the UK for world air forces news and features, serials and order of battle changes. The magazine itself was A5 size, with 50-80 pages and illustrated with b+w photos.
