Flight Magazine 1909 - 2005

Post by Kismet » Wed Oct 10, 2018 6:50 pm

Whilst looking for something for someone else, who, ironically, was doing the same, I came across this website:

https://www.flightglobal.com/products/f ... l/archive/

It contains every issue of Flight Magazine published between 1909-2005, is digitally scanned and fully searchable. Pages can be downloaded or printed. A fabulous resource.
'Major Bigglesworth,' said von Stalhein coldly, 'there are times when I seriously wonder if you were created by the devil just to annoy me.'

An excellent source. Thanks, Kismet, for flagging it up. I've already had a quick look and there are some interesting articles in it.

Doubly interesting if you type 'WE Johns' into the search box.

I saw a letter referencing a book WEJ edited, but I've been looking at mainly at some of the 1916 pages. Fascinating.

'The second series of films were the results of a large amount of labour on the part of Mr. W. E. Johns, who had unearthed quantities of film from the deep recesses and proverbial pigeon holes of the War Office and Air Ministry. Johns had pieced these together, thus forming a unique and altogether extremely interesting record of flying during the war years.'

He was trotting about the War Offices and Air Ministry then. 1934.

Fascinating! I like this mental picture.
