From the reference box #116

#116 - Cover of (what I think is) a Hawker P.1067 advertising supplement in the 30 November 1951 issue of 'Flight' magazine.

I bought it purely for it's unusual cover and the big yellow block of colour. Originally I thought it was an issue of Flight magazine, but it's actually full of Hawker Aircraft Ltd. history, from biplanes to their 'new' Hawker P.1067 - the aircraft that broke the sound barrier for the first time in April 1952.

Whilst trying to find out about this publication I came across Flight Global, a great resource with every (or almost every) issue of Flight magazine from 1909 to 2004 scanned in page-by-page for all to view. Some of the old ads are great - well worth a look.

Good grief! You do find ‘em!
Love the cursive writing and it is a very unusual eye catching design even for fighter planes xx
