Airworthy Vintage

& Veteran Military Aircraft

Warbirds International

January/February 2019

 

ON THE COVER:

 

Artist Michael Garcia used a montage of Jim Larsen photographs to create this view of Paul G. Allen and some of his historic aircraft. This image gives an idea of the all-encompassing scope of Paul Allen’s vision when it came to world history.

 

OTHER FEATURES:

 

THE INTERNATIONAL HAVOC

No one has ever said that the histories of Warbirds are not often confusing and

complex. We trace the history of one particular Douglas A-20 Havoc that has found a

new home in Russia. We also examine the Soviet Union’s immense need for the type and present a number of previously unpublished wartime photographs / by Michael O’Leary

 

SAVING A MARKSMAN

How a group of enthusiasts have preserved a rare On Mark variant of the Douglas A-26 Invader / by Mark Chapell

 

THE STUKA

We get an inside look at the Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum’s newest addition — an ultrarare Junkers Ju 87R-4 / by Michael O’Leary

 

PAUL G. ALLEN: WARBIRD VISIONARY

With the passing of the famed co-founder of Microsoft on 15 October, the

Warbird World has lost perhaps the most creative of all collectors. Through the superb photographs of Jim Larsen, we look at just a portion of what Paul G. Allen has accomplished / Photography by Jim Larsen
