Generally speaking, some of the more interesting articles are the 'fillers' in each issue, usually 2-4 pages long!

I enjoyed reading/translating some of them and find them quite good with many illustrations I have not seen published before and thought I would share the source.

Does this have any connections to the old Luftfahrt journal published in the 1970s? I mean those A5-sized volumes?

You're probably speaking about the "Luftfahrt International", which were publishe between 1974 and 1978 and the
"Luftfahrt Dokumente", I think.
Had the same thoughts, but couldn't find a direct evidence, apart from the possibility, that tey were often based
on the same source documents. The style of the articles often is very similar, so maybe the same authors were
involved, at least in some cases. And the paintings, which were used as title pictures for the "Luftfahrt International"
issues were sold a while ago, so maybe the whole archive of thath publisher was dispersed with, forming the basis
of this series.

Yes, that's the one I meant. I wish somebody would publish an English edition of the "Luftfahrt Dokumente" volume on the Ar 234. This book was entirely composed of original design documents.

Then it's quite difficult to make an English version. ;)
You could just get additional translations. I think, I have that issue, too, if there are things you would
like to be translated, just ask.
