Check out the brand new FlyPast – on sale now!


The brand new 132-page August edition of FlyPast features one of Britain’s best-loved warbirds as its cover star, Duxford-based Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IX MH434. Ken Ellis reflects on this famous machine and speaks to some of the pilots to have flown her, both currently and in World War Two. This magazine includes a FREE double-sided poster of the Old Flying Machine Company-operated aircraft, which turns 75 this year.

This issue also sees the return of our popular Spotlight section – we revisit the elegant Short Sunderland flying-boat, an aircraft that took on German U-boats and rescued stricken sailors and airmen. We also go air-to-air with a newly repainted Avro XIX and a Miles Magister, and report from shows at Duxford and Old Warden.
