From the UK website of Aeroflight: "AIRCRAFT ILLUSTRATED. First issue on sale 26 February 1968. This magazine was launched to take advantage of developments in printing technology, which allowed large colour photographs to be featured cheaply and often. The content usually comprises large, (often full page) , colour and black and white photographs accompanying fairly brief feature articles covering a very wide range of topics. The magazine went into a period of decline in the late 1980s and early 1990s as newer rival titles took away readers, but it was then completely revamped and is now one of the best general interest aviation magazines you can get anywhere. Published under the title 'Aircraft Illustrated and Air Display International' between circa December 1995 to circa mid 1997. Every issue now offers coverage of a very wide range of aviation topics including: comprehensive aviation news, UK civil register update, UK military aircraft serials update, aircraft spotting, airband radio updates, airshows and preservation news, book and model kit reviews, Internet website reviews, very well illustrated features on civil/military historical/modern subjects. Anyone with even the slightest interest in aviation will find something to read in this magazine." From the same site: 'Aircraft Illustrated Extra' was launched in mid 1969 as a companion to the monthly 'Aircraft Illustrated'. Each issue contained 4-5 articles on a (usually military) single theme, 3-4 full-page colour photos of aircraft types not related to the main theme, and a short photo feature with miscellaneous b+w photos. Roughly A5 size magazine with 48 pages, many b+w photos, 3-4 col photos. The articles were somewhat longer than normally found in the monthly magazine. Only 16 issues published. Replaced by 'Air Extra'. N° de réf. du libraire 30558
