First published in March 1977, Air World has a similar format to Koku Fan (see below), commencing with an extensive 46-page front colour section, which incorporates one major feature text plus domestic and international news topics. The black and white section usually has another special feature, with other regulars including a USAF review, a “Russian Watching” section with ITAR-TASS news agency photos, “Space Watching” and Air World Data File, which has been listing order of battle information on world air forces by region. Long-running series have recently (April 2003) included an analysis of modern aircraft types and the solo flying exploits of Senpa Shimizu. The final pages cover domestic (including a civil register update) and international news in text form, “Air Library” and “New Kit World”. (Japanese only text)
