Rapide The Magazine for the North-West Vintage Aviation Enthusiast Issue No. 9

This latest edition runs to 56 pages and has some very interesting and perhaps unique colour photographs. Whilst the geographical area is mainly the North West , North Wales and Shropshire are included and there is a wealth of aviation history to recount. Some of the articles started in earlier issues are now well into series such as No. 613 (City of Manchester) Sqn RAuxAF, continuing the Manchester (Ringway) theme with the 50th Anniversary of Transatlantic Scheduled Services from Manchester and the Canadair Sabre in the North West articles (both by ARG member Alan Scholefield) with one on the Avro 748 (by ARG member Harry Holmes). Printed on high quality paper the magazine is at a bargain price and material of much use to those interested in aviation research.
