Propliner is back

Due to be launched on 23 April is the Propliner Annual, the definitive successor to Propliner Aviation magazine.

Propliner was first published in January 1979 as a quarterly journal devoted to piston-engined and turboprop aircraft. The periodical concentrated upon those classic airliners of a bygone age, the magnificent Britannia, Stratocruiser, Viscount and Douglas piston types that once dominated the world’s air routes. It was produced purely as a hobby by a group of enthusiasts until March 2015.  

But like the aircraft it featured, it has refused to die.

In 2016 the first Propliner Annual was out, to great acclaim.

The editor, Tony Merton Jones, has been persuaded to produce another edition this year. At 108 pages, it features three ‘Prop News’ sections, major feature articles and a ‘Readers’ Response’ section.  

The annual covers news and events from the past 12 months plus a wide range of both topical and historical articles. Features include Marcelo Magalhaes spotlighting the history of the Avro 748 with VARIG in Brazil, Tony Merton Jones himself taking a look at the aviation enterprises of John Gaul, ranging from Trans World Charter Vickers Vikings to the purchase of a fleet of Canadair North Stars, while Peter Mason reviews the operations of BOAC’s fleet of Lockheed L-049 Constellations.
