We go a little more up market in this issue with Omaka receiving the Royal seal of approval! We were privileged to host William and Kate in our little corner of the world in early April, and we have a few pages covering the event, in what is an extended news section. Our main features include a look at the recovery and restoration of a P-40K which is captured over a rather appropriate chilly landscape in exclusive air to airs. Staying with WWII types we focus on Imperial Japan’s B-29 interceptor, the Mitsubishi Raiden. This tubby fighter has a complicated history and we do our best to unravel it, winding it up with a close look at the only known survivor. The Editor muses over the state of the warbird market, particularly the more affordable, and perhaps less glamorous, entry level aircraft, the Yak-52s and CJ6 Nanchangs. A recently flown and one of the most outstanding examples of the latter is featured, after having made a first flight very recently. This article might just give you the push needed to go from spectator to participant! Our Mystery machine is the feisty Hanriot HD.1 and author Gregory Alegi debunks some of the misconceptions surround this fighter and thereafter we detail the few original surviving aircraft. Finally, we have a bit of air show action from around the world, and have been fortunate to secure some stunning air to air images of a number of the high profile participants.
