FlyPast is Britain's biggest selling monthly aviation magazine, and is internationally renowned for its comprehensive coverage of historic aircraft and flying heritage.
Each month, FlyPast brings you the latest from the warbird preservation movement, as well as documenting wartime experiences, squadron histories and personal testimonies from those who flew in World War One (WW1), World War Two (WW2) and the Cold War. As well as a comprehensive news section, FlyPast takes an in-depth look at such types as the Supermarine Spitfire, Hawker Hurricane and Avro Lancaster, as well as similarly iconic US machines like the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress and North American P-51 Mustang. Our coverage is backed up by stunning air-to-air photography by the best in the business, with recent exclusives including the last airworthy Avro Vulcan and a recently restored de Havilland Mosquito.
Including nostalgic reflections on various RAF units, visits to aviation-themed museums around the world, and reports from airshows (including those at Duxford and overseas), FlyPast is an essential read for any historic aviation enthusiast. With future issues set to commemorate important anniversaries, the magazine incorporates up-to-the-minute coverage of events both recent and long distant.
