Discovered Treasures: Flying Magazines

This past weekend, I picked up a bunch of treasures from the 40s that I use for reference and research in writing my novels.

My favorite discovery:

These magazines are full of articles and ads that testify to the full-fledge war effort in America in 1943 and 1944. I’ll review some of these articles and post some ads in upcoming blogs.

Flying Magazine is still in print today – from the magazine’s press kit:

“FLYING Magazine, published since 1927, is written for and read by the pilots who actively use general aviation for both personal and business travel. Since its inception, FLYING has been the voice of aviation, read by current and would-be pilots who value the authoritative judgments and engaging first-hand experience of the most qualified editorial staff in aviation. It is the inspiration for people who are passionate about aviation and a valued resource for the segment of licensed pilots who actively fly.”

I can’t wait to dive into the magazines and reveal the other treasures I discovered from the 40s!

More to come!
