    International Air Power Review (IAPR) dead?

    I realize IAPR is much delayed between issues, but has the series been canceled? The last one I have is Volume 18.

      He was my North, my South, my East and West,
      My working week and my Sunday rest,
      My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
      I thought that love would last forever; I was wrong.

      The stars are not wanted now; put out every one:
      Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
      Pour away the ocean and sweep up the woods:
      For nothing now can ever come to any good.

                IMO not very special ... esp. about the SHAR It's a report by Commander Henry Mitchell, RN about the SHAR's career !

                  I have never even heard about this MAGAZINE, so what are you complaining about??. Please could someone give me a scanned page or two, to see how it looks inside that I finally feel like an equal human in this forum.

                  thanks,M

                    Yes. Could you please tell me how good it is? If it is, I would like to buy them as well. I think I have seen it in my local book store a long time back.

                    Thanks

                      Who is the Eurofighter Typhoon article by? Is it any good?

                      The Typhoon is sadly lacking in a decent book.

Here is its publishers website: http://www.airtimepublishing.com/. And here are also some scans of its newest article on the Oregon Defenders F-15 and KC-135 ANG (volume 20). Enjoy !!!!
                        Thank you, I appreciate that. Could you please also tell me who(the editorial team) write articles for them?

                          Well, Russian aircraft have recently been mostly covered by Alexander Mladenov, but they have also published for example beautiful articles on the Tu-16 (Maid of All Work) and Tu-142 by Lt Col (Retired) Anatoliy Artemyev, which are very well written, he's very technically literate but also knows operational details and doesn't shy away from telling you when things didn't work.

                            OK, maybe I will get one for testing to see whether it meet my requirements.

                              And a certain contributor to this site produces some rather good articles for IAPR...

                              If it helps to give you some more idea, Martinez, the articles from Volumes 16-19 have been:

                              Volume 16
                              Focus Aircraft: HALE/MALE UAVs Pt. 2. Warplane Classic: Messerschmitt Bf 110. Air Power Analysis: US Dept. of Homeland Security. News Feature: Iraq - Air power in the counter-insurgency war. Special Feature: Sea Harrier farewell, Tucson Testers - the AATC. Air Combat: RAF Liberators at War Pt. 2.

Debrief: F-16 EPAF M3 upgrade, Eurocopter Tiger for AAAC, Team 60 - Sweden's ambassadors.

                              Volume 17
                              Focus Aircraft: SEPECAT Jaguar. Warplane Classic: Douglas AD/A-1 Skyraider. Special Reports: Swiss Hornets, 82d ATRS Det 1 Air Combat: F-84 Thunderjet in Korea. Variant File: Boeing 707 military variants Pt. 2. Pioneers & Prototypes: De Havilland DH.108 Swallow. Special Reports: Garibaldi at Sea, Army Air - White Sands Missile Range, CFAS at 50. Debriefs: HAL helicopter upgrades, Dominican republic, German Border Police. Type Analysis: Fiat CR.42 Falco. Unit Report: HX-21 - Rotary-wing Test.

                              Volume 18
                              Focus Aircraft: Sukhoi Su-17/20/22 'Fitter'. Warplane Classic: Vickers Valiant. Air Force Reports: Philippines Air Force and Navy, Armenia. Special Reports: Althea Dragons - Belgian helos in Bosnia, Desert Testers - 586th FLTS. Variant File: Douglas A-26/B-26 Invader. Pioneers & Prototypes: NASA'a NB-52s. Air Power Analysis: Royal Jordanian Air Force. Technical Briefing: Denel AH-2 Rooivalk. Photo Feature: Nevada Airpower. Unit Report: HT-18 'Vigilante Eagles'.

                              Volume 19
                              Focus Aircraft: Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey. Warplane Classic: Junkers JU-88. Air Force Reports: Gambian Air Wing. Special Reports: Last Cruise of the Tomcat, 425 Squadron Canadaig Forces. Variant File: Supermarine Swift. Technical Briefing: Boeing 737 AEW & C Wedgetail. Exercise Report: CEIBO 2005. Special Feature: F-103 Brazilian Mirage retirement. Unit Report: 509th Bomb Wing: Whiteman Spirits. Photo Feature: US Navy in Korea. Type Analysis: F-4E(S) Shablool. Debrief: Lockheed YF-117 retirement, Sikorsky CH-53K, LUH competition, Joint Cargo Aircraft, SAAD SHARC and FILUR, BAE Systems HERTI, Raven and Corax

                              There's also a news section. This is good, but given the nature of the journal, the chances are that you've read much of what's there well before you read it in IAPR. On the other hand, I do find it easier to search through the news section of IAPR before trying to find in which edition of AFM, or Air International, or Flight, or Janes Defence Weekly or (you get the idea) I read the piece of information I'm looking for. Search through three copies of IAPR or about 25 other magazines/journals? Mmmm.

                                "Tupolev Tu-16 'Badger': Maid Of All Work" by Lieutenant Colonel Anatolii Artemyev, INTERNATIONAL AIR POWER REVIEW, Volume 9 / Summer 2003

                                I actually have the article in a compilation called "Tupolev's Bombers" which is articles from WAPJ & IAPR on Tu-16, 22, 22M, 95/142 & 160 ranging from reasonable to excellent from Steven J Zaloga & Piotr Butowski as well as Lt Col Artemyev.

                                  IAPR is usually very well written and full of great photos and illustrations. The only real knock on IAPR is that it cannot be relied upon as a source of current news, as it is after all a quarterly publication. If you had an AFM and an IAPR subscription, you'd have most of your bases covered.

                                    On the other hand there is quite a quality difference between AFM and IAPR, being AFM the more popular lighthearted monthly aviation magazine and IAPR the more quality and content offering quaterly book.

                                      I'm delighted to be able to say that it's my belief (as a very occasional contributor and as a friend of the editor) that it's not dead.

                                      You might even expect to see improved regularity this year, since I understand that some admin issues have been resolved, which might result in greater stability.

                                        That's good to hear as this is one of the best publication in this segment out there. Outstanding articles, brilliant photography and decently laid out!
