Published by Morton Media Group in the UK, Aviation Classics is a series of “bookazines”, or aviation books in magazine format. These are soft-cover A4 publications, each devoted to a particular type of aircraft but otherwise following magazine conventions in terms of contents, authorship and layout.

For in-depth look at the series, see Aviation Classics – Magazine Review posted previously at this site.

Following the latest issue on English Electric Lightning, issue 6 of the ‘Aviation Classics’ series is a special edition published to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.

Edited and compiled once again by Jarrod Cotter, this bookazine will comprise the publication’s now-established high-quality mix of features and photographs. The contents will focus on:

  • How RAF Fighter Command fought off the Luftwaffe preventing it from gaining aerial supremacy – thus saving Britain which was on the brink of invasion and bringing about a turning point in World War Two
  • The aircraft, squadrons and the airmen involved
  • Looks at some of 2010’s significant occurrences to mark the occasion in this milestone year

Aviation Classics’ Battle of Britain would definitely be enjoyed by history enthusiasts and those with a taste for a well-illustrated aviation magazine. The title should arrive at the newsstands at the end of September. Also, back issues can be ordered via the publisher’s website.
