WW1 produced some great fighters, but which was the best? With Gene De Marco we look at the German, French and British contenders. Scott Slocum’s photo shoot of the P-38 Lightning showcases his remarkable air-to-air photography. In this issue we look too at the recovery of aircraft from Lake Michigan and the return of the glamorous WACO UOC cabin touring aircraft to the Marlborough Aero Club.
