Belgisch luchtvaart-historisch kwartaalblad, uitgegeven door de luchtvaartvereniging van het Stedelijk Hoger-Technisch Instituut (SHTI) in Oostende van 1977 tot ongeveer 1986. Naarmate de jaren verstreken werd het blad steeds dikker. Het enige nummer van de 9e jaargang telt b.v. 106 pagina’s. Dat nummer is dan ook gelijmd, de overige zijn geniet.

The Lockheed Twins -

Lockheed 10/12/14/Hudson/18/PV-I/PV-2/Saturn

By Peter Marson. Published by Air-Britain in 2001. Hardback, 594 pages

This book covers the development and use over a period of nearly 70 years of all the twin-engined Lockheed transports and the bomber derivatives. Although the stress is on the types' commercial use as airliners, executive transports, sprayers, air tankers or private aircraft, the military history and use with air arms from all over the world is covered in some detail too. One section covers the experience of pilots flying various models of the twins. For the first time, an attempt has been made to describe, illustrate and cross-reference every major modification and radical rebuild, from the early model Learstars through to the futuristic tri-gear BACC H-250. The illustrations and line-drawings of the various models and modifications represent a valuable reference source for the historian, modeller and enthusiast. The history of every individual aircraft built (over 7,000 in all) is covered in detail as well as the aircraft's fate , where known (if no longer current). The 600 page A4 size book contains nearly 300 photos, many previously unpublished, which illustrate many major airline and military users, a cross-section of executive conversions and a number of "before" and "after" shots spanning several decades of the aircraft's service. The publication includes a cross-reference by owner or user, civil and military, as well as by registration or serial. In addition, all civil-registered P-38/F-5 Lightnings as well as civil-registered and preserved P-2/P2V Neptunes are listed in an appendix.

AIRNIEUWS 1982 – 2008 (26 jaargangen)

Na 39 jaargangen (466 nummers) trok de Stichting Airnieuws Nederland in december 2008 de stekker uit haar luchtvaarttijdschrift ‘Airnieuws’ en zette haar activiteiten voort via een website. Ooit begonnen als ROZAS (Rotterdam Zestienhoven Air Spotters), werd Airnieuws een begrip voor de Nederlandse en buitenlandse vliegtuigspotter. Airnieuws informeerde haar lezers over registerinformatie, vliegtuigbewegingen en luchtvaartnieuws van de burgerluchtvaart in Nederland en Belgie. Elke maand 96 pagina’s boordevol informatie over de burgerluchtvaart, aangevuld met artikelen over o.a. airshows, musea, historische toestellen, airlines, bijzondere operaties, ongevallen enz. Geillustreerd met ruim 100 foto’s was Airnieuws een waardevolle bron van informatie. Vanaf 1982 ging de redactie over op A5-formaat en dat bleef zo tot december 2008. Aanvankelijk in zwart-wit, later geheel in kleur. Airnieuws was jarenlang voor de civiele spotter hèt toonaangevende blad, met alle movements van Nederland vliegvelden en veel registernieuws. Airnieuws werd vanaf begin jaren ’70 op vrijwillige basis gemaakt door (voornamelijk) spotters rondom Rotterdam.
Alle jaargangen gebonden in de originele banden (eerst groen, later blauw).

Air Enthusiast

 All 131 issues of this famous quartely magazine from 1974 to 2007

 ‘Air Enthusiast’ was first published in July 1974 under the title ‘Air Enthusiast Quarterly’, as a historical aviation title to complement the monthly ‘Air International’, (which was called ‘Air Enthusiast’ at the time). It was renamed ‘Air Enthusiast’ with issue No.5, when ‘Air International’ adopted it’s present title. During the 1980’s the publication frequency declined to three times per year, but increased back to quarterly following transfer of the title to Key Publishing and further increased to bi-monthly from July 1995, with issue No.58. Ceased publication with issue No.131 in September 2007.

The magazine featured a design style and layout similar to ‘Air International’, but contained longer in-depth articles on historical aircraft types and civil/military aircraft operators. When, in about 1998, ‘Air International’ ceased publishing historical features, this magazine took over as the flagship historical title for Key Publishing.

Issues are A4 size with 80 pages each, illustrated by many b+w and colour photos, colour profiles and 3-view line drawings. Earlier issues featured a cutaway line drawing in each issue, but these have been gradually discontinued. The original and well-researched feature articles cover a broad range of time periods and topics from around the world.

Publishers: Finescroll Limited 1974-May 1989, Tri-Service Press May 1989-late 1990 (Issue 39-Issue 41), Key Publishing Ltd May 1991 (Issue 42 - 131).

Editors: William Green and Gordon Swanborough 1973-late 1990, Ken Ellis (Issue 42 onwards).

Flying Lanes - Being the Journal of a Flight Around South America and Over the Andes.

By William K. Vanderblit

New York: Privately Printed, 1937. First Edition, one of 1000 copies. Illustrated with photographs by Robert D. Huntington, and a map by Sisson.

Designed by Richard Ellis. 136 pages.

Original blue cloth with silver device and lettering on upper cover and spine; fine in fine dust jacket.

A detailed account of a 25-day flight around South America taken by Mr. and Mrs. Vanderbilt, another couple, one pilot and one mechanic, in a Sikorsky S-43 amphibian with twin 750 hp engines, additional gas tanks to permit the plane to remain in the air for eight hours, and a number of luxurious armchairs “the only ones of this kind yet installed in a plane”.

Vanderbilt, one of America's most distinquished yachtsmen, seemed unable to go anywhere without producing an illustrated account of his journeys, complete, in this case, with technical information (amount of gas used, number of oil changes, etc.) for those who might wish to make such a trip themselves. More to the point, perhaps, is the author's lively narrative, and some excellent photographs of the Andes and elsewhere, many taken by himself.

Vanderbilt had 1000 copies privately printed as give-aways to family, friends and business relations.

Price: €175 (that includes shipping to anywhere in the world)
