Who publishes "Aviation History"? Do U. S. mags still have the annoying habit of having a part of the article being detached from thr main part? E.g. the article has 4 pages on pages 20 - 23 and one half-page ending on page 69.

The Bar / "The Mossie"
« Last post by yasotay on Today at 04:37:53 pm »
I have just started reading on one of my favorite WW2 aircraft, the DeHavilland Mosquito, with Martin Bowman's "Mosquito Missions".  In the book he has several references to "The Mossie" as a referene for particular missions.  I am assuming that this is a newsletter or series of magazines that focus on Mosquito crews and their missions.  A limited internet search had no results for me.  I am hoping someone can assist me and direct me to how I might access this source.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What's with the ground crew wearing hazmat / moon suits on post landing handling? Is it the fuel, or something else ?

Do not recall when the shuttle landed, there be a volley of ground crew wearing these suits bar the Emrgency crews in their Oshkosh ARFF or E-Pumpers

Cheers

Well Konstantin and I have had another falling out, and I'm not interested in patching it up again, so it looks like I will need to find another publisher, preferably one with access to a decent photo archive. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
