A magazine featuring selected facsimile reprints from the weekly publications ‘Flight’ and ‘The Aeroplane’ for the equivalent month 50 years ago. It thus set the scene for the run-up to the outbreak of World War Two, and then covered the progress of the war as it was reported to the British public at the time. Each A4 size issue comprised 64 pages and included feature articles, b+w photos, 3-view and cutaway drawings, war news and so on. Contemporary mistakes were highlighted in a specially written hindsight column by Bill Gunston. First issue dated June 1989. The magazine ceased publication with the April 1991 issue due to poor sales – allegedly because of the complete lack of colour illustrations.
