Cool, but it's not to PRESENT. Goes up to 2008 only.

I like the older ones better anyway.

I guess "present" is a rounding error for such a long duration! :-)
Worth a look in any case!

September 1977 I bought the 50th Anniversary edition of Flying, Vol 101 No3, it's still on my book self. Got to say it's nicer to hold the real thing, but grateful for the great opportunity to look through the ones that got trashed.

Makes you feel like you're back in the 1950s reading some of those early articles - flight testing the 707 for instance. Marvellous :)
So cool!

I grew up with Flying, and the seeing long forgotten cover issues brought tears to my eyes, a flood of Dopamine nd pleasure neurotransmitters to rival any 'drug'. Thank you for not just making my day but my life to be as well as what has passed.

These issues are virtual time machines allowing us to see what the readers saw back then. So many great and long forgotten photos as well!

A trip into the past. Interesting to read about the forgotten stuff I was learning 57 years ago. Wonderful to read about the good old days. Need to show my Grandson this site
so he can learn how it once was. Tried explaining to him that at one time we would listen to MDW tower on 278 KC and his response is "huh?" while he tinkers with the G1000 panel.
How times have progressed.

For me, it's having the opportunity to read Gordon Baxter again. A legend.
