AIR TRAILS MAGAZINE- page 1


This magazine changed its name to 'Bill Barnes Air Trails', but this was simplified to 'Air Trails' from the February 1937 (Vol.7 No.5) issue. With the last name change the proportion of fiction was sharply reduced, and after September 1939 the fictional articles were dropped entirely. From the August 1942 issue (Vol.18 No.5) the amended title 'Air Trails Pictorial' was introduced. The name was changed again, to 'Air Trails and Science Frontiers' between January 1947 (Vol.27 No.4) and September 1947 (Vol.28 No.1), but reverted to 'Air Trails Pictorial' the following month. The simplified title 'Air trails' was again adopted with the September 1950 (Vol.34 No.6) issue, before changing to it's final title 'Air Trails - Hobbies for Young Men' from April 1954 (Vol.42 No.1) until the final issue of October 1955 (Vol.45 No.1). For most of it's existence it featured articles of interest to young men, including gliding, aircraft modelling (with scale plans) and a few technical articles. Most issues had 80-100 pages each. The editors were: 1928 - 1931 Paul Chadwick, 1931 - 1937 F. Orlin Tremaine, 1937 - 1954 William Winter.
