The brand new January issue of FlyPast is a bumper 132-page special that looks back at RAF Bomber Command. Don’t miss our tribute to the men and machines that served in World War Two. We reflect on some individual stories as well as considering what might have been, had Bomber Command been required in the Far East. We also visit Duxford to see the latest work being carried out on the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight's Avro Lancaster.

We present 17-pages of exclusive articles, artwork and images profiling the Luftwaffe's fabled Messerschmitt Me 262 jet - a machine that influenced aircraft design for years to come.

A look at one of the less celebrated fighters of World War Two, the flawed and sometimes forgotten Brewster Buffalo.

A visit to Chalgrove, where a pair of Gloster Meteors are still in use, as flying test-beds for ejection seat technology.

The remarkable story of the discovery and restoration of Boeing B-29 Superfortress ‘Doc’, featuring exclusive air-to-air photography of this magnificent machine.

We scrutinize a famous and popular warbird, the Royal Netherlands Air Force Historical Foundation's North American B-25N Mitchell.

We also begin a two-part examination of the Soviet Union’s aviation ‘war trophies’, and include some rarely seen images from the archive. Another major feature focuses on a unique aircraft museum in Johannesburg which features some unusual treasures, and we also pay tribute to the valour of World War One flying ace Albert Ball. Plus news of a major overhaul for East Kirkby’s Lancaster and a new hangar for Vulcan XH558.
