Some years ago (in 2012) we gave some attention on this website on the introduction of a new aviation magazine. It is a quarterly with the name ‘The Aviation Historian’ with Nick Stroud as editor. The first issue was released in October 2012.

Meanwhile, issue number 18 (January 15, 2017) was recently released. The magazine has kept up its reputation to place a nice variety of articles on aviation. Some of these are comic, others tragic but they all give information that has been little or not published before both on civil and military aviation. Issue number 18 gives a nine page article from my hand on the little known Fokker S.13 crew trainer.

As usual the quality of photographs and drawing material is excellent in these 130 page book-like soft-cover magazines!
