In Japan, monthly magazines are generally published two months in advance of the month appearing on the cover, thus Issue 715 of Aireview (May 2003) appeared in shops in late March.
This long-standing title tends to open with a short colour section on various items of topical interest, with another 6-page domestic photo news section later. Similarly, the contents generally follow a set sequence: civil, military, domestic and overseas news, airline topics, an in-depth chronicle focusing on a particular type, 24 pages of manga cartoons dealing with historical events (which won’t be to every Westerner’s taste), obituary columns for aviation figures and book authors, Japanese civil register and book/magazine reviews, ending with a scale model column. First published in the early 1960’s. Title in Japanese is ‘Koku Johu’. (Japanese only).
