What's in your loft?
The RN Flight Safety Centre is in the process of making electronic copies of "Cockpit" as PDF format files for those without instant access to the magazine to read. In the process the archive magazines were routed out and magazines back to Edition 10 Dec 1960 were found. The few gaps that existed have kindly been filled by the Fleet Air Arm Museum but Editions 1 to 9 are not held by either unit. These were published by the Flag Lieutenants for Flag Officer Flying Training around 1958-1960. Hailed as a Monthly Magazine when it appeared, it was actually produced every other month until it was taken on by the newly formed RN Flight Safety Centre in Dec 1962.
If anyone has these missing original Editions (1 - 9) stowed away, the RN Flight Safety Centre would be very keen to borrow them to have made into electronic PDF Files and, in the longer term, the FAA Museum would be keen to have them. Please contact Jerry Tribe via the details below.
