Back Issues

August 2014

August’s 124-page issue of FlyPast is packed with content, and in particular it’s a must-have collector’s edition for those that love the de Havilland Mosquito. It features a special section on the wooden wonder, dedicated to its history, and use in combat, plus an exclusive look at the example currently flying in the US. We even go air-to-air with the Mossie alongside a Messerschmitt Me 262 jet, perhaps the first time the two types have flown together as warbirds. It all comes in the same month that a second Mosquito has taken to the air – we bring you this breaking news, plus much more.

Our special Spotlight section focuses on the Vought Corsair, one of the finest fighters of World War Two. With exclusive artwork, plus veterans’ memories and rarely seen images, we bring you the full story.

Ben Dunnell presents the first in a two-part feature looking back on the filming of the 1990 war film.

We visit the Aircraft Restoration Company at Duxford who are close to returning Bristol Blenheim G-BPIV to the air.

Visits to shows in France, the UK and the US

An ace in two wars, John Bolt was a gifted F-86 Sabre and Vought Corsair pilot. Robert F Dorr describes his exploits.

We also bring you news of another Supermarine Spitfire that has arrived at North Weald, where it will be restored to fly, and the latest series of dates for the trip to the UK of the Canadian Avro Lancaster. Don’t miss our exclusive competition to actually win a flight alongside the Lancaster (note closing date is August 4). Plus, Ken Ellis takes us on a trip around Rutland, sampling his home turf’s aviation heritage.
