This is the first time I have had a chance to see this quarterly publication. TAH is printed in the UK and covers a variety of subjects in each issue. The articles are well written and provide a goodly number of photos and other illustrations.
Here is a rundown of the articles in this edition:
A look at the politics of Airbus Industries.
The DC-4/DC-4E bomber project (this is not the C-54 aircraft)
The Vought V-100 Corsair Jr
History of the Swiss Mirage IIIRS recce bird
Quantas WWII Indian Ocean routes
RAF 'big guns' 37mm and larger 20s and 30s projects
Howard Hughes and the Constellation
The start of space medicine and the Bachem Natter
Auster ferry flight from the UK to South Rhodesia in 1946
A photo story on a Barracuda being pushed over a cliff into the sea
The story of the Italian Molteni fighter
Finally, a nice piece on the Puma, Gazelle, and Lynx helos
In addition to the above articles, there are sections on updates to previous articles, reader's comments, and some shorter one and two page articles. Frankly, I found them all interesting and well written with some great photographs.
If you are looking for something a bit different from the norm or just a pleasant quarterly publication on your favorite subject, then I can highly recommend that you check this one out.
