  • A packed news section means there is a healthy amount of vintage and warbird activity happening presently! Our own Classic Fighters air show is covered, there is little on narrative because the images tell the story far more eloquently – the three Spits head on over a stunning Marlborough landscape says it all! Since one of the headline acts of the event was the very quick and very stylish Yak racer ‘Steadfast’ we have dedicated some pages describing its pedigree, before taking a closer look at its V-12 powered sisters which continue to prove their worth as an affordable step into the past. The past of another iconic fighter comes in for some forensic examination as well; we take a look at efforts to discover what lurks under the current paint scheme of the Deutches Museum’s Bf109E, which served with the famed Legion Condor in Spain. Of course we can’t forget about its younger and more potent siblings either! Staying in Germany, we get the low down on a very interesting collection which is going through some changes, a process which means its diversity will see it attract more and more attention as time passes. Finally we turn our attention to one of the Soviet Union’s lesser known bombers, the Ilyushin DB-3/ IL-4. We take the ‘mystery’ out of this type with a comprehensive overview of its history, combat operations and then reveal the few survivors.:: More about this issue »
