Aviation Archaeologist

The "Aviation Archaeologist" is the magazine produced by the BAAC for its members. The magazine was first published by the then Aviation Archaeologists' Association in 1974. Its main principle has remained relatively unchanged since then, that is to provide relevant news to the membership along with articles written by the members about their own projects and or research.

The magazine is sent out to all the members and to subscribers. Subscription for non-members of the BAAC 10.00 including P&P for four issues (15.00 overseas), back copies of Series No.3 can also be purchased from the Council for 2.50 per issue, some copies of Series No.2 are also still available (Issues prior to No.41 are priced at 1.50 each). To subscribe please use the membership contact form.

The different editions have been published in Volumes and Series over the years, the current ones under Series No.3

Issues which are still available as back issues are indicated in the menu, however the Council is currently digitising all issues and so these issues may become available in digital form in the near future.
