Subtitled ‘Experience the World Of Aircraft’. Published in 132 weekly parts of 28 pages each, between May 1988 and January 1990, making a total of 11 bound volumes with 3700 pages. This was a more wide-ranging publication, covering with world of aviation in several sections: Air Combat – military aircraft operations, Civil Operations – airlines & airliners, Accident Investigation – famous air crashes, Flying Colours – photo features, Race for the Skies – technical developments including the evolution of major aircraft types, Aircraft Reference File – brief technical data on several aircraft types grouped by a theme. Included many accounts from the pilot’s point of view.

Extremely well illustrated and very colourful – featuring large colour photos, colour 3-view drawings and original artwork which was produced specifically for this publication. The coverage of interwar airliners and 1950’s military aircraft types was particularly good, although the pre-World War Two era was generally poorly covered – presumably because of the lack of colour illustrations. The same production team later produced World Air Power Journal.
