I have been a subscriber for over a year now, and this relatively new periodical is one of the best aviation publications I have ever read. There are some very big aviaiton writers behind this magazine, and it shows. Each issue covers many facets of the world of flight, with a definite bend towrds military avaition. There are often wonderfull and riveting first-hand accounts from WWI, WWII, Veitnam, Korea, the Gulf War, and the war in the Balkans. Each issue features a "gallery" which is simply a photo essay profile of a given aircraft, usually current front line military hardware, that is always stunning. Some of the articles that I have really enjoyed include a comprehensive history of the military leather flying jacket, a first hand account by a Black Widow pilot in WWII who had to shoot down a B-29 after the crew bailed out and the autopliot flew on, and a great first-hand account by an A-10 pilot about a mission in Kosovo. If you love flying, civil or military, warbirds or jet fighters, or even "aerial oddities" you will love this magazine!
Very happy with this magazine.
I agree with the previous review. High quality articles and photos of restored or found vintage aircraft. This magazine covers a wide range of aviation subjects. I love them all! Great read every month.
"Flight Journal" is a first rate aviation magazine which features well written articles on a wide range of aviation issues ranging from civil to military aircraft, aviation history and art, latest aircraft technology and vintage types, safety issues, among several other subjects. This makes the journal very appealing to a wide readership. Aviation enthusiasts will always look forward to the next issue of the journal as it is bound to come up with something new and enlightening, whether it is reports of restorations, some rare photographs or a feature on the latest jet fighter aircraft.
However, some readers with only specialised areas of interest in aviation may not find this journal appealing. Such readers could include those only interested in aircraft maintenance, or just regional airlines or airline fleet and network planning etc. For me, however, I love anything to do with aviation and thus this journal was produced for the likes of me.
