No, monthlies have to fill space and it's easy to fill space with photos and rehashed press releases.

Mr. Chris,they are a busty writers if they depend on a two month to publish a magazine,
not all of them of course,the good authors always have a new subjects.

By the way, the Jane's reprint "Jane's Fighting Aircraft  of  WW1" has some incredibly detailed info on some engines, even component metallurgical analysis!

Of course,it was a great book,but the Jane's Encyclopedia of Bombers was a rare one.

recycled old stuff wrapped in sumptuous presentation.

Good way of putting it.  Still, I enjoyed it and have every issue (along with World Air Power Journal and International Air Power Review).  Wish it was still in production.

Wings of Fame was lukewarm. Feature articles WW2 aircraft were recycled old stuff wrapped in sumptuous presentation. And WW1-era was pretty completely skipped.

I did like WW1 Aero and Skyways.

I loved the first book and also discovered the marvellous French language graphic novels
about the French Air Force and Navy pilots (BD) various series and ordered on Amazon
to try and recover my schoolboy French.
Cannot wait until the second volume. I am hoping that there might be some info on the
proposed production Mirage III vstol to replace F100s in the Armee de l'Air

In my opinion, Wings Of Fame is the best aviation magazine

Exactly. And perhaps Chris can shed some insider info on this, but I believe it is much cheaper to produce and mail e.g. 4 100-page issues vs. 8 50-page issues.
