GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT FLYING MAGAZINE

FLYING magazine was a spin off from POPULAR FLYING Magazine and it was also edited by W. E. Johns.

It was a weekly publication first published on Friday 2nd April 1938 and it ran for 84 weeks before the last issue appeared on Friday 4th November 1939

when it closed due to paper shortages at the beginning of the Second World War.†† Each issue cost 3d(there was, of course, 240 pence to the pound in pre-decimal money).

A number of early issues of FLYING magazine featured on the cover, the great aviation artwork of Howard Leigh, who died on 6th February 1942 at the age of only 32.

W. E. Johns was sacked as editor of FLYING in January 1939 for his criticism of the Government and his last editorial appeared in issue 43, dated 21st January 1939

Flying Magazine was published George Newnes Ltd.

The copyright in the magazine is presumably held by that original company although some 70 years have passed since publication.
