This is the 1st issue of the year for 2022 (our 37th year of publication). As usual I have to thank those people who have kindly allowed us to reproduce their articles and photos this issue, in particular the following - Owen Lambert, Ley Reynolds, Andrew Wetzlich, Bruce Chapman, Alan Yee, Roger Lambert, Mick Mirkovic, Dave Muir, RAAF & the AHMWA. Don't forget that all photos credited to these individuals are subject to copyright and cannot be reproduced without their written permission. I also am grateful to Ley Reynolds for the review material.

This is a large issue with a total of seven entries under the 'Aviation' banner rather than the usual 3-4. Expect more Twin Otter and Avro Anson schemes in the future as we have a lot more info in these areas.

All and any contributions to this publication are always welcomed, so send any material to the editorial address (P.O Box and email listed at the end of this page), or hand it to me at club meetings.
