The historic aviation market has a global following of dedicated enthusiasts who are very passionate about aviation heritage and nostalgia. The passion and dedication of historic aviation enthusiasts from across the world helped raise 5 million pounds to get the Vulcan XH558 airworthy again and has also raised a further 3 million pounds so the aircraft can fly at airshows.
Historic enthusiasts are collectors of aviation art, books models and will regularly attend airshows and museums around the world to follow their hobby.
The historic magazine market has seen continued circulation growth for the last 4 years due to the fact that readers of historic magazines are older and have more disposable income.
